|Ages of Mankind||Age of Terra - Dark Age of Technology - Age of Strife - Age of the Imperium|
The Age of Terra is the earliest period of human history, lasting from roughly the beginning of recorded history to the 15th Millennia or 18th Millennia. During much of this time, mankind was limited to the confines of Terra and ancient civiliations came and went. But eventually, mankind developed space travel and colonized most of the Solar System. Most notable of these colonies were Mars, the moons of Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune.
