Business has been around since the beginning of time. However, back in the earlier times, people were not conducting business in the same way that we do today. For example, during the Medieval times, sword fighting, archery and jesting were considered important business skills. The men wore billowy outfits and armor during this time period. Merlin and King Arthur were considered important figures during the Medieval times. The Medieval times took place from 476 A.D. to 1492 A.D.
The period that came after the Medieval times was considered the exploration period. During this time, ship building, navigation and piracy were considered important skills. People wore funny hats and steel breast plates during this period. Magellan and Christopher Columbus were important figures during the exploration period.
The renaissance period is one of the most well-known periods in business history. Inventing, architecture, painting and playwriting were some important business skills during this period. Davinci and Shakespeare were some of the central figures during this time.
