The revolution of modernity If one imagines all of human social evolution charted on a hour clock, then the modern industrial epoch represents the last five minutes, no more. For more than half a million years, small bands of what we may agree were human beings roamed the earth as hunters and gatherers. This revolution took place roughly between and , a period including what is known as the second industrial revolution.
