All of the eras and cultures in Humankind correspond to different times in Human History. Each Era refers to a different time zone where technology and research work in their own way.

So, each Era needs a different approach and play style as the environment changes. Below are all seven eras in Humankind:

Neolithic Era

As this is the starting Era, there is only one culture: the Nomadic Tribe. Moreover, In this Era, the most important things are primary resources, land, and knowledge, so make sure you focus on them mainly.

Ancient Era

As you head into the Ancient Era, you will see how vast Humankind can be. There are a total of 10 cultures you can choose from in this Era.

Furthermore, these cultures include the Babylonians, Egyptians, Harappans, Hittites, Mycenaeans, Nubians, Olmecs, Phoenicians, Zhou, and Assyrians. In this Era, it will be wise to invest in technologies like Calender, Writing, Bronze-Smithing, and The Wheel.

Classical Era

The Classical Era is another Era with ten cultures to choose from in the game. The cultures available in this Era are: Achaemenid Persians, Aksumites, Celts, Greeks, Carthaginians, Goths, Huns, Mauryans, Maya, and Romans.

Each culture is unique and will give you some affinity, so be careful what culture you go with heading into new Eras.

In this Era, focusing on investing in technologies like Rhetoric, Hydrology, Standing Armies, and Trade Expeditions is the best decision.

These cultures include Aztecs, the English, the Franks, Byzantines, Ghanaians, Khmer, Mongols, Teutons, Umayyads, and the Norsemen.

These include the Spanish, the Ottomans, the Haudenosaunee, the Joseon, the Ming, the Mughals, the Ottomans, the Poles, the Venetians, and the Edo-Japanese.
