A recently launched website provides a useful aid for the Bible student.

The address http://www.visual-capitalist.com/2400-years-of-european-history/ provides an animated map of the history of Europe from 400BC up to current times. At any year in the 2400 year period of the history of Europe it is possible to determine the borders or the population of a country or empire. This information would be difficult to obtain in hard copy maps. Furthermore because the website is animated it shows the constantly changing borders over time. The animated map would be useful to anyone studying the book of Revelation and it is of interest to watch “the drying up of the Turkish power”. The image provided is a screenshot of the map for 1330.
