ür die Kartenliebhaber unter Euch habe ich heute wieder etwas feines. Wer seine Runde in unserer Welt ansiedelt und dafür Kartenmaterial sucht dürfte diese Seite zu schätzen wissen. Thomas Lessman hat ein beeindruckendes Archiv an selbst gezeichneten Karten erschaffen. Thomas hierzu:
I’ve been drawing history maps for as long as I’ve been reading about history. Of course my earliest maps were crude hand-drawings. Now I’ve got a good computer and a very good geographical map to use as a background!
Eventually I plan to write a book called Thomas Lessman’s Atlas of World History. In that book I intend to include over 100 World History Maps that show the borders of civilizations and locations of tribes, from prehistoric times to the present, approximately every 50 to 100 years.
As you can imagine this project is enormous! It takes a LOT of research to find information for the borders – and sources are often difficult to find, incomplete, and may conflict with other sources. I try to keep a detailed list of my source references on my TAL_Map_Sources page. Completed maps are uploaded here to my site, and most are also re-uploaded to Wikipedia for use in various history articles. When I update a map I have to upload the corrected version to this site and Wikipedia, update the list of sources, etc.
Please feel free to browse my site using the links on the left side of this page. My world history maps are located below, along with information about them. If you are interested in helping finish any of these maps (or if you have information to help make them more accurate), please email me at email@example.com. For more information, see below!
