The Entire History Of Human Culture... In 5 Minutes

This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble. The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals.

I found that quite interesting, thanks. Visualizing something like the relationship between birth/death places isn't something I've thought about before.

Excellent video!!!

I'd have loved it more if they would have shown more about South America and Africa.

Makes me feel that they would be seeing interesting trends in travel if other civilizations had names and trade and travel info intact to this day as well.
