History of Africa & Middle East from Ancient to Modern: Cool Simulation

Here's a terrific simulation of the changes in African and Middle Eastern empires from the ancient era to the present.

Changes in control of the Middle East are as amazing as those in Africa.  

Watch as control of the Middle East passes from the Achaemenid Empire in about 400 BCE to the Seleucid, Parthian, Sassanid, Rashidun Caliphate (did not know about this one), Ummayad Caliphate, Abbasid, Saffafids,  Seljuqs, Ilkanate and the Timurids in 1370.
