Anal historical note: Several of the listed milestones in tropes existed well prior to the appended dates but either had minimal impact or were lost in later years. For example, movable type blocks existed in Greece around 300 BCE but did not have the same impact on history as the Gutenberg Press. OlderThanPrint is simply short-hand for the more accurate trope name as [[OverlyLongName Older Than The Widespread Adoption Of Movable Type To The Point That It Had A Widespread And Irreversible Severance From The World As It Was Before]] is rather difficult to type.
