Centuries of European border changes

March 28, 2014  |  Mapping

The Centennia Historical Atlas is a program that shows you border changes in Europe and the Middle East, from the 11th century to the present. It's meant as an educational tool. The video below is the animated map from the program set to climactic music from the movie Inception.

Now contrast that to the original promotional video for Centennia. I'm amused. [via @sogrady]
