Marching through the Middle East

Tam sent me a link to an animated map of the Middle East and surrounding territory through the ages. The thing is silent, completely apolitical, and absolutely astonishing.

Take a look. It’s a visual of 5000 years of history in 90 seconds, and well worth the time.

Actually, all the maps are pretty mind-blowing.

I’ve got to get back to work, but …. wow.

    I sent it to the entire faculty and staff as something of potential value.

    Can’t watch it at work since the firewall blocks most streaming media. Can’t wait to see it when I get home.

    Thanks for that link! It’s had a pleasantly negative effect on productivity for me and several office mates this morning.
