The evolution of the methods used to find solutions of Einstein’s field equations during the last 100 years is described. Early papers used assumptions on the coordinate forms of the metrics. Since the 1950s more invariant methods have been deployed in most new papers. The uses to which the solutions found have been put are discussed, and it is shown that they have played an important role in the development of many aspects, both mathematical and physical, of general relativity.
