Europe's borders are changing again. This is big news, but you might be surprised to find out just how malleable the borders in Europe have been over the past 1000 years, as this timelapse map shows:
When I was in primary school, I used to think that borders were as fixed and unchanging as the lines in the atlas in the classroom. I still remember the day I completed Jordan Mechner's classic adventure game The Last Express. The closing credits, which show Europe's changing borders from 1914-1994, was an eye-opener for me.
Those changes have continued since.
That's all for this week — have a great weekend, and we'll see you on Monday.
