The History of the World in Four Maps via Google Maps Mania

The animated map above shows the changing borders of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa during the Twentieth Century. It is a a pretty good illustration of how geo-political developments demand frequently updated maps.

I created this animated map using Mundipedia. Munipedia is an interactive map which shows country borders for different dates in history. Enter a date into Munipedia and you can view how the world looked in that year. For example enter the year 1984 and you will see a divided Germany, split into East and West Germany. Skip forward a few years and in 1990 the map shows just the one Germany.

Recently Purchased: Temple of Castor and Pollux Stickers and More From Douglas E. Welch Design and Photography [For Sale]

I took over 200 photos as we walked around the Valley with our Sicilian relatives. The sun was blazing but we soaked in the history of the site through these remains from antiquity. It is difficult to truly understand that Greek speaking people walked, played, ate and worshiped at this site so many years before. You almost have to remind yourself that this isn’t some movie set made for your entertainment, but rather the survivors of humans long history on the planet. — Douglas

Home School: Archeologists Unearth Ancient Roman Mosaic Under a Vineyard via My Modern Met

Archeologists Unearth Ancient Roman Mosaic Under a Vineyard via My Modern Met

Thanks to Italy’s rich history, if you dig a little bit you’re sure to find something special—even in unexpected places. This was made clear in Verona, where the city has been excavating a privately owned vineyard since the fall. And now, their hard work has paid off as archaeologists have uncovered a pristine mosaic floor dating back to the 1st century CE.

It’s an incredible find in an area that’s long been recognized to house treasures from ancient Rome. In fact, according to local sources, the land was known to sit on top of Roman artifacts since at 19th century. Some mosaics, which are on display in a city museum, were already excavated from the site in the 1960s.
