Maps of Europe from AD 1 to 1000

Infonaut Blog links to a neat series of maps showing the changing borders of Europe and the Near East from 1 AD to 1000. It is neat watching the rise and falls of the Roman Empires, the fracturing of the Islamic Caliphate, the rise of the nation-state, and more. The maps are surprisingly detailed and some centuries have city plans available for view.

As any sort of posts dealing with borders of Europe changing, here is the Catholicgauze favorite: the closing credits of Last Express

On another subject: you may have read (though it is not reported in many outlets) that the "rich" provinces of Bolivia have declared autonomy. Should be a rich field for you, geography-wise.
