"Map of the Day: The History of the World Every Year"

"Map of the Day: The History of the World Every Year"
by Ollie Bye

"Since 200,000 BCE, humanity has spread around globe and enacted huge change upon the planet. This video shows every year of that story, right from the beginning. Today’s map ambitiously shows the territorial history of the world’s civilizations from 200,000 BC until today. While I cannot attest to the accuracy of every single detail, it appears largely correct and paints a very interesting picture of humanity’s shared history.”
(Full screen suggested.)

"It would indeed be the ultimate tragedy if the history of the 
human race proved to be nothing more noble than the 
story of an ape playing with a box of matches on a petrol dump."
 - David Ormsby-Gore
