Map Porn

The Entire History of the World—Really, All of It—Distilled Into a Single Gorgeous Chart (Slate) The 5-foot long Histomap. They link to an evolutionary one too, although one with just human evolution would be interesting. Why start history at 2,000 B.C.?

  1. I am still waiting for a book that would cover just H. sap's history, 200,000 years. I don't know what's taking'em so long... I mean, hey, it's us! :-)

  2. Interesting. Nice to see that Daniel Quinn hit this one way back: bull's eye! (Prehistory is kinda like prewater, huh, I am paraphrasing Ishmael).

    But if you note in the article, folks are still all over the map, from 50,000 ya to a couple of million...

    Just sapiens please! It's time we knew our own story...
