This video documents Ancient western civilization from it's beginning, in 3500BC, to it's end with the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476AD. It provides a good overview of the time period and puts the different civilizations and cultures in perspective to each other, hope you enjoy.

It's advised that it be watched in HD and fullscreen mode as this will give the best detail on the map.

Western civilization began in approximately 3500BC with the emergence of the first cities, in an area of land known as the fertile crescent. From there civilization spread westward, into Greece, Italy and North Africa. As this happened the old cultures from the chalcolithic period continued to dominate central and northern Europe. Eventually these gave way to the mass migrations of the time and a new tribal system developed. But the spread of civilization continued and the Roman empire extended it into Northern and central Europe, where it stayed until it's fall in 476AD.
