Both History and Geography explained in these maps

Shanelle Zaino's curator insight, October 22, 3:10 PM

With the increasing amount of information online it can be misleading at times. I do believe this is a useful collection of maps however I feel people looking at it might get trapped in a pitfall. After looking at these 40 maps a person could feel that this is all there is to know about this subject. Yes it is informative to have this information together but it should just be the start of the conversation not the end. So often we want quick google searches with definite answers,

when some topics require a lot of research from different sources. The reader needs to make up their own pool of knowledge.
