    a humbling perspective

    What is the meaning of the expression "humbling perspective"?

    "We have travelled through layers of history. Every step we've taken has been a step into the past, to the time when the planet was half its present age. It's a humbling perspective."

    Thank you!

    Re: a humbling perspective

    It is a view that makes us feel humble. "Perspective"here is in the sense of a particular way of considering something.
