History of the World in 100 Seconds

A video map from Gareth Lloyd showing where "historical events" occurred in the world from the dawn of history to present.  Up to the 1500s, almost everything occurred in the band running from Britain southeast to the Middle East, and another cluster further over near China and Japan.  After 1492, as the Age of Exploration got underway, the outlines of the continents begin to take shape.

H/t again to Sullivan.
