New category: Maps
There is a new addition to my website: historical maps! I have been interested in history for a very long time. Now I finally found a way to illustrate it.
Maps are a great way to showcase events in the past. They give us a direct and simple overview of a campaign, crusade or journey of discovery. My map of the Fourth Crusade and the partion of the Byzantine Empire is a good example for this: You can follow the Crusaders and see the new states they created. However, all maps lack depth. No matter how detailed a map is it is always a simplification. But nevertheless it is a good start.
In the future I plan to add more maps to the collection. Right now I am working on one of the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom and Demetrius´ conquest of India in the second century BC. All my maps will be available in English and my native language German.
Lastly all maps might contain inaccuracies as I am neither a cartographer or a historian. So be careful!
