Today’s map, from YouTube creator Ollie Bye, ambitiously shows the territorial history of the world’s civilizations from 200,000 BC until today. While I cannot attest to the accuracy of every single detail, it appears largely correct and paints a very interesting picture of humanity’s shared history.
