They [South Asia and East Asia] are actually both slightly down a bit now, being just under 20% instead of, as is usually the case, slightly over that amount.

Some regional / cultural historical atlases: Indo-Europeans https://indo-european.eu/maps/ Beautifully done. I take it this is an ongoing effort.

Re: History of Europe

My favourite general historical atlases include: 1) Colin McEvedy's series of atlases covering ancient, medieval, modern, and recent history of Europe and the Middle East, and his similarly put together atlases of of African and North American history. As with this video, the maps are much simplifie...
