Africa Without Colonization

map-of-africa-without-colonists_fb2

Ever wondered what Africa could have looked like had it not been colonized by Europeans? A great map created by Swedish artist Nikolaj Cyon shows exactly that, upside down to skew the Eurocentric bias. It was compiled using historical, linguistic, and ethnographic data, and there is even an alternative historical timeline to support it. See map below (click to enlarge to 15 MByte image) and check out BigThink’s fantastic feature about it to learn more.
