Timeline Annenberg Media Exhibits: Collapse Hundreds of years ago in what is now modern Honduras, Copán was a thriving civilization, a center of the cultural life of the Maya. Tens of thousands of people made their home in the Copán Valley. Yet despite its importance, Copán went into decline.

Why did this great civilization fall? can combine with external causes (such as war or natural disaster) to bring about a collapse. Join us as we explore the collapse of four ancient civilizations. Ready to get started? "Collapse" is inspired by programs from Out of the Past, a video series from Annenberg Media.
Animation: Human Population Growth Over All of History Imagine that for every million people on Earth, there was a single dot on a map. In total, that would be about 7,600 dots – representing today’s global population of 7.6 billion. But, what if we went back in time, and watched those dots accumulate over human history? When and where do the first dots appear, and when does population growth ramp up to get to the billions of people that are alive today? The History of Population Growth Today’s animation comes from the American Museum of Natural History, and it shows over 200,000 years of population growth and the major events along the way. If you consider yourself on the more impatient side of things, we suggest starting at 1:50 which will zoom you to 400 AD – the time of India’s Golden Age. It took 200,000 years of human history to get to one billion people – and just 200 years to reach seven billion. Key Population Moments Agriculture The impact of farming cannot be emphasized enough.

A Little History Also known as the Great War and the War to End All Wars (sure wish that had worked out), the First World War changed everything. It had absolutely nothing to do with America, yet America fought in it and emerged the world leader. This is a painting by artists Wilie Stower of the Battle of Dogger Bank, 1915. WWI started because of European leaders’ posturing for power. On the Web I found a whole series of great printable resources for World War I here. And here is an excellent animated map of the Western Front from the BBC. This is a map of the Western Front in 1914.
