Hello, so I had too much free time due to pandemic and I have turned my urbanist obsession into this: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=14KYh2qR08ZjXuTn4NTUnfBxdrB3msC_3&usp=sharing I am no historian however, so please don't take this too seriously. This is exactly what the thread title says: Google Map marking all +100,000 cities of Europe, North Africa and Middle East, divided between the historical periods in which they were settled. By clicking on the left side you can decide which layers do you wanna see in the same time. It also doubles as an alternative way to view population density (or at least urbanisation) between countries. Most of it should be accurate, in few cases I have included cities which have slightly less than 100k pop but which they were simply very important in history. The least accurate part of the map is, by far, Arabian Peninsula, where informations regarding city history are extremely sparse and unclear (even on the Arabic wiki). By "the beginning of a city" I meant either its official foundation date or first written mentions of it, sometimes also archeological statements.
