Would have been more helpful if the map had a timeline as part of the animation.

It would be better if they had had a legend of years as it progressed. It makes little sense as it is.

Watching this I can’t help but wonder how many millions of people have died in those thousand years for relatively minor changes in borders? WWII was 65+ million and WWI was nearly 20 million. And we call ourselves ‘civilized’.

this is great but could use some annotations as to what you are seeing

I was totally surprised at how big Poland used to be.

They should connect this to the rise of political thought in the New World that said that men can govern their own affairs without the Divine Right of Kings. All these hundreds of border shifts and the countless deaths to make them happen were all the result of tyranny, monarchy, and power-mad men and women.

“1000AD”

(Sigh) Well they also say “Could care less” so they’re never going to get dates right either.

(It’s AD 1000, not 1000AD)

bfl. Someone apparently did a really good animation of WWII some time back. Saw it on FR, but don’t have the link.

Very nice. And if you know history, you do not need to be told the year. It is self evident. At any rate, looking at the state of the planet today, one has to think we all would have been better off, if the Mongols had indeed conquered the entire world. At least there would be no traffic jams.

Fascinating (after getting through the commercials). Imagine all the beer, bread and cheese that has been consumed in Europe over the past 1000 years. I would love to have lived through it all as a spectator.

Germany did not come upon the scene until recently and it had two short time periods of enormous growth. Well, Germany is ascendant once again and time will tell if history repeats a third time.
