Nice timeline map from 3500 BCE to the modern era. It is especially useful to compare the development of different civilizations globally. Lots of informative roll-over buttons and links to more detailed articles. In addition to the global view, you can zoom into for regional maps.

Viking slaves buried with their masters

Viking slaves buried with their masters | Civilization | Scoop.it

About 1,000 to 1,200 years ago, a Viking man still in his 20s was laid to rest on a craggy island in the Norwegian Sea. A new analysis of his skeleton and others buried nearby — several without their heads — suggests a haunting possibility: Some of the dead may have been slaves killed to lie in the grave with their masters.

In the ancient times the roman Colosseum was a place of entertainment for all. Gladiators would fight wild animals like tigers just to entertain others. This article mentioned the gladiators were people who had committed crimes. Such a terrible punishment to die fighting a wild animal.
