    Interactive Historical World Atlas since 3000 BC

    I think this website may be very interesting as a complementary tool for the study of history and of the information contained in the documentary sources, historiography, or enciclopedias.

    http://geacron.com/home-en/?sid=GeaCron853219

    It contains a sequence of maps covering the political history since 3000 BC.

    It ables you to position in any geographical area, both with a background map or relief map, zoom, navigate in time, search and create links that contain the geographic and historical situation that is desired.

    It also includes the ability to embed in digital media sites or topic sites, geographical areas and their evolution over time.

    And clicking on each country you can go to the relevant information in Wikipedia or Britannica online!
