1,000 years in 5 minutes

Just saw this video of how European borders have been redrawn over the last millennium.

UPDATE: The original video was taken down, this one is from Centennia the company that made the software that made it called the “Historical Atlas 2010”, this version is less cool because its a screen capture but you get the idea.

10 centuries in 5 minutes Thanks to our friends over at Atlas Obscura for posting.
