    This is a video that shows a map of the world illustrating the rise and fall of nations and changing empires throughout the known history of human civilisation.

    I found it much better (ie much better resolution) by tracking it down directly in Youtube.


    I searched "the history of the world every year" (in Youtube)


    eg This one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymI5Uv5cGU4 (maybe copy and paste)


    It is still much too much information for me to digest in that way but it is a very nice idea and some things do jump out.(presumably the intention)

    I enjoyed the way in which these videos have been created using changing colours of territories on the map, it is a lot to take in initially but, it really gives that sense of history of the changing peoples and great empires that have come and gone over the centuries.

    I found the Sasanian Empire captured my attention, perhaps for the fact it isn't quite so widely popularised as say the Roman Empire it coincided with, but also because of the sheer longevity, lasting over 400 years and also that it directly predates Islamic culture.

    To my untutored eyes there had been only 5 to 10 empires of note. This seems to multiply that up a hundred fold.

    And of course there is an unspoken "to be continued" (if we are lucky enough ,that is)
