Map of Civilization

This 1850s attempt at mapping the flow of world civilizations as rivers emerging from the flood is fascinating. You can have a really close look here. There is a bit of a question about the Adam and Eve thing, which this artist solves by extending the ether surrounding them, and adding civilizations as references to them appear in history or in literature.

It is a simply stunning way of organizing history. Thanks again to Pecay at BibliOdyssey for brightening up my day!
