The degree of the earth's axis has changed throughout history.
If I am not mistaken, I believe that people can make very accurate estimates about the historic degrees of the earth's axial tilt.

If this is the case, then I would like ask some questions
1. What was the degree of the earth's axial tilt 1000 years ago?
2. What was the degree of the earth's axial tilt 1500 years ago?
3. What was the degree of the earth's axial tilt 2000 years ago?
4. What was the degree of the earth's axial tilt 2500 years ago?
5. What was the degree of the earth's axial tilt 3000 years ago?
6. What was the degree of the earth's axial tilt 5000 years ago?

I would like thank you in advance for anyone who has provided the answers to these questions.
