Events of 1700

  • Berlin Academy of Science established, largely through the influence of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.
  • Travel in England at the end of the 17th century is still done mainly on foot or sometimes on horseback. Carriages are virtually unknown except as a status symbol and other wheeled vehicles such as wagons and carts are little used except for local traffic. Packhorses or mules are the usual means of carrying goods. Heavy goods go by barge along the rivers or by sailing ship along the coast. Long distance travellers often rely on coastal voyages too. There has been a gradual introduction of "stage wagons" designed to carry passengers in stages with horses being changed at staging posts that are usually inns, the innkeeper doubling as a postmaster.
