World history in 200 BCE - great empires emerge

This period of world history is one which sees large states emerge to dominate the ancient civilizations of the Eastern Hemisphere. In so doing, they consolidate the cultural achievements of the past centuries, and expand the reach of these civilizations.

East Asia

Within the past few years China has been united under the Han dynasty. This is a moment of great importance for the future of China, as it marks the arrival of the first of a series of great imperial dynasties which will, on and off, rule China right up to the 20th century. It is also important for the history of the wider world as this succession of Chinese dynasties will develop systems of organized government which, influencing Western practices many centuries from now, will be key to the rise of the modern state.

Central Asia and developments in warfare

The unification of China has been paralleled by the rise of the first steppe “empire” in world history. This is a culmination of a long process for the nomadic tribes of central Asia, who have posed an ever-increasing threat to the Chinese – a threat such that the Chinese have built a long series of defensive walls separating their agricultural homeland from the steppes.

On the western steppes, the Scythians continue their domination, but their power is being challenged on their eastern flank by the rise of new Iranian peoples, the Parthians and Sarmatians. This development may well be linked to the rise of heavy cavalry. Larger, stronger horses were now being bred on the Iranian tablelands, and these could support a mounted warrior clad in chain mail. Indeed, the animals themselves were being given an armored coat.

This new heavy cavalry was used, not just for mounted archery, but for charging the enemy and breaking up infantry formations with long spikes. Cavalry-on-cavalry engagements also became frequent. In due course, heavy cavalry would come to dominate the battlefield, and be the basis for the rise of the military aristocracies of the Middle Ages. That, however, is long in the future. For now, the military power of the states of the Mediterranean and Middle East rested on large, highly-organized formations of infantry. Alexander the Great’s phalanxes had proved their worth on the battlefield, but now the Roman army was the most effective exponent of this type of warfare. For sheer numerical superiority at this date, however, one has to look to China.

South Asia

In the Indian subcontinent, the Maurya empire has given unity to the Aryan states and spread their culture far down into the Indian peninsula. Unlike the Han empire of China, however, which has 400 years of history ahead of it, the power of the Mauryan empire is already unravelling.

The Middle East and the Mediterranean region

In western Asia, although the empire of Alexander the Great barely outlasted his death in 323 BCE, his conquests have reshaped the map of the Middle East. This is now divided amongst large kingdoms ruled by the descendants of Alexander’s generals. Within their borders, Greek-speaking elites now rule, and Greek civilization (or “Hellenistic” civilization, which modern scholars call the mixed Graeco-Asian culture of this period), has been spread via the hundreds of new cities founded by Alexander and his successors.

To the west, the city of Rome is on the rise. After two long, grim wars with the north African city of Carthage, the Romans now dominate the western Mediterranean, and this will act as a springboard for many further conquests.


The Celts, or Gauls, as the Romans call them, have been expanding over the past few centuries, into Italy, Spain, Britain, the Balkans, and even as far as Asia Minor.


In Africa, the Bantu peoples, with their iron-using farming culture, are spreading across the central grasslands from their homeland in western Africa. As they go they displace or absorb the hunter-gatherer peoples they encounter.

South East Asia and Oceania

Indian traders are pioneering maritime trade routes between India and South East Asia. As a result, Indian civilization is beginning to spread amongst the peoples of Burma, the Malayan peninsula and the islands of Indonesia.

In the Pacific, Polynesian culture is taking shape as the islanders adapt their way of life to local conditions.

The Americas

In the western Hemisphere, the Olmec civilization has now vanished, succeeded by a number of regional cultures. One of these will develop into the highly creative Mayan civilization.

Most of North America remains home to hunter-gatherer societies, but the early farming cultures of the Mogollon and Hopewell flourish in very different environments.

In South America, the Chavin civilization is fragmenting into more localized cultures. Elsewhere, farming societies are spreading through the Amazon basin.

World history in 30 BCE - an age of empire

This is an era of the ancient world when all the major centers of civilization see huge empires at various stages of development.


The Han dynasty has given almost two centuries of peace and stability to China – one of the more enduring periods of peace in global history for a significant portion of the world’s population. For the Chinese, it has been a time of prosperity and expansion.

Commercial expansion

The Hun confederacy has been defeated by the Han, and vast territories have come under Chinese rule. This has allowed the Silk Road – the historical highway between east and west – to emerge as a major trade route.

The commerce between east and west is further fostered by the fact that two large states lie between the Roman and Chinese empires, those of the Parthians, who rule much of the Middle East, and the Scythians, who rule a huge territory stretching from central Asia into northern India. These give a large measure of peace to large regions of the world, and with peace comes economic growth.

This period of world history is indeed a time of commercial expansion over a large part of the Eastern Hemisphere. Another trade route between east and west has opened up across the Indian Ocean. By now, the Monsoon-driven Indian Ocean trade between Arabia and the west on the one hand, and the Indian sub-continent on the other, is well established. This links to the sea routes connecting India to South East Asia. This in turn links up with routes to China.

The growing Indian Ocean trade is bringing southern India into the mainstream of Indian history as the civilization which emerged centuries before amongst the Aryans of northern India is now reaching down into the south.

The rise of Rome

There has been no such tranquility further west. The power of Rome has grown to take in the entire Mediterranean region, a process accompanied by brutal wars of conquest, and by bitter civil wars and fierce political in-fighting. However, the young politician, Octavian, has just defeated his rivals, Antony and Cleopatra, at the battle of Actium. This victory makes Octavian the sole master of the Roman world and brings to a close the civil wars. He will soon take the title “Augustus”, and rule as the first of the Roman emperors.

The steppes of Asia

On the western steppes, the Sarmatians, an Iranian people, are now rising in power. They are expanding westward, replacing the Scythians as the dominant people to the north of the Black Sea.

In central Asia, one group of nomads, the Yuehzi, have been driven from their homelands on the eastern steppes by the Huns, and have moved westward, establishing a new homeland east of the Caspian Sea. They will soon play a major role in Indian history.


In Africa, the Iron Age Bantu peoples are moving southward through the Congo basin.


In the Pacific, the Polynesians have now settled even further afield, in Tahiti and the Society Island.

The Americas

Several urban civilizations are emerging in central America, including the Mayan civilization.

InSouth America, this is the period when the famous Nazca lines are being laid out.

World history in 2500 BCE - ancient civilizations thrive

In 2500 BCE much of the world is still populated by hunter-gatherers. But farming and pastoral populations are continuing to encroach on their lands, and in many parts of the world the rise of civilization is astonishing.

The Middle East and Egypt

In the Middle East of the early Bronze Age the two great civilizations of ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt are flourishing. They have sophisticated writing systems, bronze technologies and highly developed public administrations. The first literatures are flowering, and already some of the most spectacular structures in all world history, the Great Pyramids, have been built in the Nile valley.

South Asia

An urban civilization has also appeared on the Indian sub-continent, in the Indus valley. This shows advanced features such as town planning and effective drainage systems.

East Asia

In the river valleys of China, villages are growing in number and size, and their technologies are advancing. Soon one of the world’s great civilizations will emerge here.

South East Asia and Oceania

On the islands and coasts of southern China the ancestors of the Malays and Polynesians are starting their great migration down into South East Asian waters. From here, in the course of their history they will travel over a vast area of the globe: eastwards as far as Hawaii and Easter Island, and westwards as far as Madagascar.

Europe and Central Asia

Another group who, in the course of history will come to cover a large part of he globe, are spreading outwards from the steppes north of the Black Sea. These are horse-breeding peoples who have been moving both eastwards across central Asia, and westwards into Europe. They take their ancestral Indo-European language with them. By this time, they have harnessed horses to the first wheeled vehicles. The first of these are heavy carts, but it will not be long before they evolve into light, two-wheeled chariots.

The Americas

In North America, arctic hunters, ancestors of the present-day Inuit, are beginning to spread over the far north. In South America, farming is expanding over a wide area, and large, permanent villages are appearing in Peru. The majority of the continent, however, remains home to hunter-gatherers.

History of the world in 100 seconds, according to Wikipedia

As you know, the world wasn’t always how you know it today. Land was discovered, people migrated, and significant events in history played out to shape what society is like now. For a glimpse in this sort of evolution of the world, Gareth Lloyd scraped all geotagged Wikipedia articles with time attached to them, providing a total of 14,238 events. Then he mapped them over time.

Your history lesson begins in 499 BC, when most of the documented events appear in Europe. Around the middle mark, you see some activity in Asia. Finally, around 1492 when Columbus sailed the ocean blue, got lost, and thought he was in India, there’s a burst of activity worldwide. Fast forward to present day, and you’ve got an image that resembles a modern map.

Can you do something more with the data? Lloyd put all geotagged Wikipedia articles in a Google Fusion Table as well as the subset that has time attached.



interesting to see how he makes points persist over time in order to show anything coherent at any one time. also presumably, much like images that are geotagged, some are just tagged ‘China’ with a big dot in the middle of it, whereas others are accurate to a few metres!

It seems very biased towards the northern hemisphere.
Did only 50 things happened in the southern hemisphere? Really?
Great graphics though. I like that the points keep there faded to give the regions their shape.

@Karl, this shows, as mentioned in the Comments, “documented” events. So in this manner, it’s a fair portrayal and explains all the Eurocentric focus.


For context, the land area of the Earth, excluding the continent of Antarctica, is 134,740,000 km 2 (52,023,000 sq mi). [7]

Empires at their greatest extent

Empire size in this list is defined as the dry land area it controlled at the time, which may differ considerably from the area it claimed. For example: in the year 1800, European powers collectively claimed approximately 20% of the Earth's land surface that they did not effectively control. [8] Where estimates vary, entries are sorted by the lowest estimate.

  1. ^ Its successor state the USSR and its successor in turn, Russia, reached maximum extents of 22.3 million km 2 in 1945 and 17.1 million km 2 in 1991, respectively. [9]
  2. ^ Its successor state the Republic of China (1912–1949) and its successor in turn, the People's Republic of China (since 1949), reached maximum extents of 7.7 million km 2 in 1912 and 9.7 million km 2 in 1950, respectively. [9]
  3. ^ ab The reason the Empire of Brazil is listed as having a larger area in 1889 than the Portuguese Empire had in 1820, despite Brazil having been a Portuguese colony, is that the Portuguese settlers only had effective control over approximately half of Brazil at the time of Brazilian independence in 1822. [9]
  4. ^ More recent reassessment of the historical evidence, both archaeological and textual, has led modern scholars to question previous notions of the extent of the realm of the Medes and even its existence as a unified state. [20]

Timeline of largest empires to date

The earliest empire which can with certainty be stated to have been larger than all previous empires was that of Upper and Lower Egypt, which covered ten times the area of the previous largest civilisation around the year 3000 BC. [32]

  1. ^ More recent reassessment of the historical evidence, both archaeological and textual, has led modern scholars to question previous notions of the extent of the realm of the Medes and even its existence as a unified state. [20] If the Median Empire never surpassed the size of the Neo-Assyrian Empire, the latter remained the largest empire the world had seen until the Achaemenid Empire surpassed it. [23][11]

Timeline of largest empires at the time

  1. ^ More recent reassessment of the historical evidence, both archaeological and textual, has led modern scholars to question previous notions of the extent of the realm of the Medes and even its existence as a unified state. [20] If the largest empire in the year 600 BC was not the Median Empire, it was Late Egypt with an area of 0.55 million km 2 . [27]

Because of the trend of increasing world population over time, absolute population figures are less relevant for comparison between different empires than their respective shares of the world population at the time. [33]


This ranking of 100 most influential people in history is fair and transparent without any prejudice and racist as you can see the author is not a muslim. he made a wondeful job, kudos to him

Not trying to be rude but Muhammad and Newton do not deserve to be above Jesus. From a historical point of view and looking at the legacy he left, there’s no doubt he’s the most influential person of all time.

I must read this book, because being a Non muslim the auther given 1st rank to prophet mohammed pbuh why i don’t know. i must read perfect seerah of prophet.

How it’s not Jesus in #1? Jesus is easisy the most famous and influential person of humanity. There is more books, films, paintings, music about him than any other, he’s the central figure of the greatest religion of world, 2000 years of history, 2 billions Christians, 32% of world population, the global calendar, greatest instituition is Catholic Church, how is he behind Newton that lived only in the last 300 years? of even Muhammad? Come on.

Newton bigger than jesus? That is weird. Simon Bolivar only 48? and what about San Martin?
