A Visual History of Humanity in 100 Seconds

To create this visual history of Humanity, Gareth Lloyd and Tom Martin used data from 15,500 historical events on Wikipedia and mapped them on an empty surface according to their locations on the world map and the time each happened during the history of mankind. Watch as the new world explodes as Christopher Columbus crosses the Atlantic in 1492.
