Cartographic History of Empires

Coming Anarchy has a neat set of posts showing the rise (and in some cases) fall of empires. Currently they have created sets of maps for the Persia, Poland, Ethopia, Russia, and Aremnia. The maps are accompnaied by caption which briefly describe the geographical scene.

Coming Anarchy also has a map post showing the rise and fall of the Roman Empire from 510 BC to AD 1453.

We're all cartographers here -- we should team up to make more of these. I've always thought that the graphically boring information at Tom Lessman's site could be mined for fun graphics in the future.
