History maps depicting battles or wars will show the territories occupied by each army and the troops’ movements. For example, the world history maps of a larger breadth depicting World Wars will show each side in a different color. Each military world history map will also mark the locations of the most important battles. Road history maps
Presented here is a first attempt by the World Digital Library to show the sweep of world history by presenting a set of documents associated with especially important dates and events. These documents can be displayed either by timeline or interactive map. This set will be expanded and made more representative as new content is added to the WDL.

Each map contains a wealth of information and stories, so to have such a wide range of topics covered is a fantastic resource. I chose to use the maps in a BBC video because they are a very clear way to show changing borders in Europe and there were so many dates available through history.
