Contemporary history describes the period timeframe that is closely connected to the present day; it is a certain perspective of modern history. In the widest context of this use, contemporary history is that part of history still in living memory. While there have been scientific accomplishments and humanitarian achievements during the present age (i.e., the modern age), the contemporary era has seen scientific and political progress, not so much in what has been originated as by what has been developed. Notable achievements have been those such as the redefinition of nationalities and nations and the ongoing technological advances that marked the 20th century.
