A Twitter post today mentioned the Maps of War, a site that has history maps with time lines showing the progression of different events overlaid on a map. Two of the maps caught my eye: Imperial History of the Middle East and the History of Religion. I’ve embedded both of them here.
While not much of the site deals with ancient history, the maps do provide an interesting point of view.
The Flash files will load after the jump.
Imperial History of the Middle East
History of Religion
(Note that this map only includes the major world religions.)
