Fantastic time lapse map of Europe, 1000 - 2005 A.D.

posted by Jason Kottke   May 15, 2012

This time lapse covers more than 1000 years and shows the shifting national borders of Europe.

There’s also a slowed-down version that shows the year and some annotation of events. (via ★interesting)

Update: The originals got taken down but the company responsible for the historical mapping software put up similar versions that I’ve embedded/linked above. But the new versions are worse and not quite so fantastic. Why is that always the case? (thx, andrew)
