Right-click (or, on some systems and/or browsers, click-and-hold) the back button in your browser. You'll be presented with a list of recently viewed pages within the current tab.

Back Button History

This actually represents the pages your browser would take you to if you just hit the back button repeatedly. This way, you can jump directly to that page five pages ago without having to go through all the intermediate steps.

Of course, in most browsers there's also a convenient link to access your full browser history. (IE 11 on Windows 10 shown above.)

Bonus tip: If you do go back in your history, then the Forward button (usually next to the back button) will show you the list of pages you could move forward to as well.
