Changing between years and centuries? Use our easy and quick time converter to help you out with any conversion! Many more unit calculators are available.

To document important dates throughout time we use the two units of time, **years** and **centuries**. Whether it is in the past or in the future, they are used to give warning for upcoming events or to talk about past moments in history. They help us to organise and split up events both in the past and what will occur in the future. Many of our time converters can help you change easily between two units, such as this **year**** to century converter**.

**[number of] years / 100 = [number of] centuries**

## Using Years

**Years** are very commonly used for history and age as time measurements. For larger periods of time that have passed, using years is a good indicator and it is how we view the world and times that have already gone. Years are divided into months and muliplied into decades. Use this **yr**** to cent conversion tool** for any calculations.

## Using Centuries

The measurement of time of **centuries** is a large amount usually used to refer back in time to historical events and periods. Centuries are divided into decades and multiplied into milleniums. Use our **year – century calculator** above.
