1000 Years of European Borders

This map shows how Europe’s borders have changed over the last 1000 years.  It is pretty cool to see what parts have constantly changed where others keep staying relatively the same (I say relatively because a place like France has changed in size at times, but for the most part, there is always a France, you know?).  I have watched it three times now and will watch it again.  Each time I try to focus on a different region.
