Historical Atlas of the Medieval World AD 600 - 1492 by John HaywoodHistorical Atlas of the Medieval World gives an overview of world history for 600 AD - 1492 AD.
The atlas divides the world into five areas: Americas; Europe; Middle East; Africa; and East & South Asia. The first series of maps and time lines gives an overview of the major events in all of these five areas at once as well as other pertinent details. Then the atlas focuses on each of the five major areas, in turn, and covers their major events in more detail. At the back, there is a A-Z guide to the people, places, and events that were mentioned in the text.

Historical Atlas of the Medieval World, AD 600-1492
A work in progress with no claim to definitiveness, it has been built in less than three years by a dedicated team of Harvard undergraduates, graduate students, research scholars and one professor, with some valuable contributions from younger and more senior scholars at other institutions. For more details on who we are, please see the People page. We have drawn on the cartographic achievements of our predecessors, most notably from Richard J. We build on that achievement and continue it in close collaboration with Pleiades, the online gazeteer and bibliography of classical sites. Although the initial post-Roman focus has been on medieval Europe, Byzantium and the Crusades have not been neglected, and we have begun to include the essential third leg of the tripod of medieval civilization, the Islamic world.
