a project worthy of your attention

The task which I am setting myself (if I ever master the technology) is to set up an interactive world map, which can display the stories of each of the groups I have looked at, against what was happening economically and politically in their geographical locations which may have contributed to their foundations and eventual decline. I also want to look at the common themes which run between them, problems and successes, hopefully resulting in a more complete view of disparate groups which tried to carve out a niche for themselves in a rapidly changing world in such a similar way.

I think I have my work cut out for me.  If anyone has any advice, it will be gratefully received.

  1. Map not necessary. Everything you need to know is all around you. Decline starts at the top and tricks down.
