description

 In little more than 1,000 years, the first kingdoms are forged across Europe, mighty empires created from America to Asia, and great religions arise to shape the world. The Arabs form an empire twice the size of Rome’s, and Viking adventurers settle as far afield as Russia and North America. The fearsome Mongol hordes of Chinggis Khan sweep through Asia and shoguns rule in Japan.
