  2nd millennium BC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first part of the millennium is a time a bit less colorful than others, a lull in the history of Ancient Near East, still living in the shadow of greater past times, and spending all energies in trying to recuperate from the deeply anarchic situation that was at the turn of the millennium.
Near the end of the 2nd millennium BC, new waves of barbarians, riding on horseback this time, wholly destroyed the Bronze Age world, and were to be followed by waves of social changes that marked the beginning of very different times.
Beginning of the Iron Age: discovery of iron smelting and smithing techniques in Anatolia or the Caucasus in the late 2nd millennium BC.

 Feature
Millennium, according to the Oxford English Dictionary is formed with the Latin word mille meaning thousand + annus that is year, on the analogy of biennium, triennium, etc. The word means a period of one thousand years.
So if one starts counting the years from the first year, the first millennium would be complete on the last date of the 1000th year and the 2nd millennium will usher in on the 1st date of the following year and so on.
Likewise, the 2nd millennium would start in the year 1000 and end in 1999 while the third one would start in the year 2000.

 The Hurrians   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The earliest recorded presence of Hurrian personal and place names is in Mesopotamian records of the late 3rd millennium; these point to the area east of the Tigris River and the mountain region of Zagros as the Hurrian habitat.
From then on, and especially during the early 2nd millennium, there is scattered evidence of a westward spread of Hurrians.
In the last centuries of the 3rd millennium BC, Hurrians were already present in the Mardin region, which, from a geographical point of view, belongs to the North Mesopotamian plain.

1st millennium - 2nd millennium - 3rd millennium
In the Gregorian calendar, the 2nd millennium commenced on 1 January 1001, and ended at the end of 31 December 2000.
It is perhaps more popularly thought of as beginning and ending a year earlier, thus starting at the beginning of the year 1000.

Usually, a Zeta Body arising from a 2nd Millennium incarnated form can only be sustained for a small period of linear time.
However, the 2nd Millennium experiential role must out-picture a portion of the dynamic, for in doing so it projects itself into the true reality on some level of its multiple existence within the fallen condition.
Understand that the 2nd Millennium experience is entirely the result of 1st Millennium consciousness attempting to bridge the gap into the 3rd Millennium.

This work presents the proof that the hypothesis of the late migration of the Aryans in the Iranian Highland (mid to end of 2nd millennium BC) is not agreeable with the Near Eastern sources and therefore is not solid.
The oldest texts from Sumer, Akkad, Egypt etc. dating back to the 4th to 2nd millennium have been reconsidered for the argumentation, in which traces of the Aryans in form of tribe names, geographical names, divine names and personal names as well as Aryan loan-words in the old Near Eastern languages are investigated.

 January 1 2001, is the first day of the third millennium!
This page is dedicated to spreading the news that the year 2000 is the last year of the current millennium, not the start of the next millennium.
If the general public wants to believe that 1/1/2000 is the beginning of the new millennium, then I will accept that, as the calendar is the vehicle of the public's perception of the numbering of days, and if its evolution includes starting the new millennium next year, than so be it.
A while back, the magazine "Skeptical Inquirer" had an article about the coming new millennium, and that those of us that are harping on the fact that January 1st, 2001 is actually the start of the next millennium are being too pedantic.

 Janurary 1, 2001 is the first day of the new millennium, NOT January 1, 2000.
Many have told me their organization knew 2001 was the start of the next millennium, but they did not wish to contradict their advertisers who all want to have "Millennium Sales." Some of these companies in the later part of 2000 planned on saying "Oops, we made a mistake.
Common sense might suggest that the year 2000 is the dawning of the third millennium, but it is in fact the waning of the second.
The first millennium began in C.E. There is no year zero in our calendar: the sequence of years passes directly from 1 B.C.E. to C.E. Adding a thousand years to the year 1 equals the year 1001, marking the start of the second millennium.

 Date of the Millennium
Although many of us were celebrating New Year 2000 as the start of the new millennium, the Third Millennium does not, strictly speaking, start until 2001.
Of course, it would be quite possible to redefine the start of a century as the "round number" and define the 20th century as 1900 to 1999.
It is worth noting that the problem only arises because the centuries are numbered as 1st, 2nd etc. Decades are not numbered in this way, and thus there is no problem in defining "the Sixties" as 1960 to 1969.

I have never asserted that the third millennium began on January 1, 2000 or that the people who do are in the right.
I *have* asserted that people who continue to indignantly wave this triviality like a reeking sweatsock under the noses of those of us who are A) perfectly comfortable employing common usage or B) largely unconcerned about it one way or the other are banal, insufferable twits who deserve to be thoroughly poked.
And it will be a moot question in 6 six months, when every man, woman, and child who says "It is now the third millennium" will be absolutely correct, no matter how stupid they are.

 When is the next millenium?
As we approach the end of the Second Millennium, there appears to be mass confusion as to when the new millennium begins.
Of course, when the first millennium ended, and the second began, there was a rash of religious mania that confused the issue, just as we have our modern-day millennium nuts.
That is no excuse, however, for confusing a simple matter of how many years are in a decade, a century, or a millennium.
