Brief History of Egypt in Maps: 1500 to 1800

There is a nice short video of the evolution of Egypt in maps from about 1500 to 1800.  While one is unlikely to learn anything new cartographically, it is interesting to see the old maps of Egypt and how the land was displayed.  Hat tip:  Sky to Earth

It would be great to get an English speaking narrator for the video content just because I felt that having to read the subtitles distracted me from the visuals in the clip. Overall though, great content.
