Watch the history of humanity unfold on this fascinating map

J-P Mauro - published on 12/05/17

This video is an awesome teaching tool, but it's thought-provoking for us all.

What an undertaking it must have been to map the progress of humanity coming out of Africa over the last 200,000 years. Home schoolers will find this to be an invaluable teaching tool, but we find it hard to believe that anyone will not be fascinated by this mesmerizing video, put together by Youtuber Ollie Bye, in 2016.

Ollie has been putting out videos like this, which map out the development of countries and empires, border-by-border, since 2015. He (or perhaps his group?) has mapped the spread of

the Conquests of Genghis Khan
,
the History of Western Europe
,
the history of the British Isles
, and much more over the course of 124 videos.

We found the appearance and dominance of the Mongol empire, during the 13th century, to be the most impressive part. The Mongol Empire stretched from the Pacific Ocean all the way into Europe and lasted nearly 200 years. Who knew? Now you do.
