Calling on all the resources of r/history here folks.

I remember reading somewhere an historian's estimation that, in the past 3500 or so years of human history, we had seen only 268 in which no major armed conflicts were known to have been fought around the world. Only thing is, that estimation didn't include any details of specific years.

I thought it'd be fun to see how many years we could find in global history where there was credible evidence of peace.

Rules as follows:

  • Starting from 1500 BC, records previous to this are too sparse for even reasonably accurate mapping

  • A 'Peace Year' can include a year during which a 'low intensity conflict' was nominally in progress (e.g. Isles of Scilly vs. Netherlands, Caste War of Yucatan, Unif. of Saudi Arabia) so long as no major engagement in said conflict occurred during that year

  • Skirmishes and extremely localised conflicts do not count for the purposes of this exercise unless they can be said to have direct impact on subsequent military events (i.e. unless they led in some way to a war). Small one-off bouts ('handbags' as we call them in Britain) can occur in a Peace Year.

  • Pogroms and state-mandated, systematic persecutions cannot occur in a Peace Year. Customary/legal allowance of what we now consider 'barbaric practices' may occur in a Peace Year for the purpose of not making the exercise totally redundant, as those activities occurred almost everywhere to some degree until very recently, even though their inclusion does somewhat cheapen the idea of a 'Peace Year'

  • If the readership thinks it worthwhile, 'Near Peace Years', with only marginal conflict, can also be included.

How many Peace Years can we find?
