Europe Then and Now – Monday Map

Someone over at the Unofficial Martin Guitar forum posted a link to the fabulous site whence comes the latest Monday Map, showing Europe’s political situation in the year 1 A.D.

This cool map and the one below are found in a section entitled History of Europe, featuring similar maps from every hundred years since Year 1.

Europe map in Year 1 and 2000

This is just one part of a site that is wonderfully immersive and educational. In addition to maps of Europe, including those from antiquity, there is a section on world history, North America, the Middle East, and so on. There is also a shopping section where various maps and other items are available for sale!
