A new update for our TimeMap of World History

I’ve just completed the “round-up” of what’s happening in the world for the years 979 and 1215. These go with the world maps for those dates.

The period of World History covered by those dates includes Europe moving from the Dark Ages into its Medieval Period; China making huge advances in technology; Islam expanding; the Crusades; New Zealand being settled by Maoris; the Mayan civilization declining; the building of the huge temple of Angkor Wat, and much more.

Do have a look – seeing the contrasts between what’s going on in the different regions of the world is very illuminating.
