By Armchair General

Animated map of Ancient Greece courtesy of The Map as History.

Armchair General has partnered with The Map as History, a company that produces outstanding animated maps with accompanying narration. Each month, a link to one of their animated maps will be featured on the ACG site.

This month’s map explores the evolution of Ancient Greece, from early settlement through the growth of its colonies and trading posts throughout the Mediterranean, the conquests of Alexander the Great and, eventually, Greece’s absorption into the Roman Empire.
