Some people look back fondly on dating, generations ago, with romantic ideas of greater morality and better values. Others think that with all of the online apps and matchmaking websites we have today, it’s never been easier to play the field. But each era of dating in the past century was not without its pros, its cons, and its own set of unspoken rules. From the turn of the 20th century, to the present day, romantic relationships have been an evolving part of culture, just like everything else. The concept of dating really began at the turn of the 20th century. Prior to the late early s, courtship was a much more private, unemotional affair. Women would meet with several men, with her parents present, to whittle the pickings down to the most suitable match for marriage, which heavily relied on factors such as financial and social status. When a young woman decided on a man she wanted to see exclusively, their activities as a couple took place either in the household, or at social gatherings. At that time, there was no such thing as just two young lovers “going out on a date. However, this began to change in the early years of the 20th century, when couples began to go out together in public and unsupervised.

Dawn of the atomic age helps carbon dating detect forged art
CE —, was a cold period of global extent, with the nature and timing of reduced temperatures varying by region. The Gulf of Alaska GOA is a key location to study the climatic drivers of glacier fluctuations during the LIA because dendrochronological techniques can provide precise ages of ice advances and retreats. This is curious because reconstructions of paleoclimate in the GOA region indicate the 19th century was not the coldest period of the LIA.
Using newly available paleoclimate data, we hypothesize that a combination of moderately cool summers accompanying the Dalton Solar Minimum and exceptionally snowy winters associated with a strengthened Aleutian Low could have caused these relatively late LIA advances. These advances were partly a response to declining summer insolation over the last 8 ka of the Holocene Berger and Loutre, ; Solomina et al. Contrary to what this millennial trend in orbital forcing would predict, the Holocene glacier record is more complicated than a progressive buildup of glacial ice.

The “Cult of Domesticity, ” first named and identified in the early part of the century, was solidly entrenched by late nineteenth century, especially in rural environments. The Victorian home was to be a haven of comfort and quiet, sheltered from the harsh realities of the working world. Housework took on a scientific quality, efficiency being the watchword.
