Does w3m offer a keyboard shortcut to go back one page? I couldn't find anything in the man pages.

It's B (Shift-B). It's the shortcut for previous buffer in w3m jargon.

See the Manual or a short introduction here.

The keyboard shortcuts can be found in /usr/share/doc/w3m-0.5.2/doc/MANUAL.html (or where ever your w3m is installed). – fschmitt Oct 12 '10 at 9:20
Within w3m, press H to show the list of key bindings. – Gilles Oct 12 '10 at 17:52
