CASE 124 - The History of the world - its countries and continents
Ancient history is the study of the written past from the beginning of recorded human history in the Old World to the Early Middle Ages in Europe. The span of recorded history is roughly 5,000 years, with Cuneiform script, the oldest discovered form of writing, from the protoliterate period around the 30th century BC. This is the beginning of history, as opposed to prehistory, according to the definition used by most historians.
The term classical antiquity is often used to refer to ancient history since the beginning of recorded Greek history in 776 BC (First Olympiad). This roughly coincides with the traditional date of the founding of Rome in 753 BC, the beginning of the history of ancient Rome, and the beginning of the Archaic period in Ancient Greece. Although the ending date of ancient history is disputed, Western scholars use the fall of the Western Roman Empire in AD 476, the death of the emperor Justinian the coming of Islam or the rise of Charlemagneas the end of ancient and Classical European history.
In India, the period includes the period of the Middle Kingdoms, and in China the time up to the Qin Dynasty is included.
The roman empire
The roman empire lasted from 44 BC to, the western order of the empire 476 and the eastern order of the empire 1453 and the temporal order of the empire still exists today
MIDDLE AGES - MEDIEVAL ERA
The Middle Ages (adjectival form: medieval or mediæval) was a period of European history from the 5th century to the 15th century. The period followed the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476, and preceded the Early Modern Era. It is the middle period in a three-period division of history: Classical, Medieval, and Modern. The term "Middle Ages" (medium aevum) was coined in the 15th century and reflects the view that this period was a deviation from the path of classical learning, a path supposedly reconnected by Renaissance scholarship. The Early Middle Ages saw the continuation of trends set in Late Antiquity, depopulation, deurbanization, and increased barbarian invasion. North Africa and the Middle East, once part of the Eastern Roman Empire, were conquered by Islam. Later in the period, the establishment of the feudal system allowed a return to systemic agriculture. There was sustained urbanization in northern and western Europe. During the High Middle Ages (c. 1000 - 1300), Christian-oriented art and architecture flourished and Crusades were mounted to recapture the Holy Land. The influence of the emerging nation-state was tempered by the ideal of an international Christendom. The codes of chivalry and courtly love set rules for proper behavior, while the Scholastic philosophers attempted to reconcile faith and reason. Outstanding achievement in this period includes the Code of Justinian, the mathematics of Fibonacci and Oresme, the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas, the painting of Giotto, the poetry of Dante and Chaucer, and the architecture of many great cathedrals such as Notre Dame de Paris.

The British empire
The British empire 1497 to 1707 (but secretly still lives on) now known as the British commonwealth with 54 sovereign states (2 billion people) ***COUNTRIES IN RED***
1756 to 1763 (The original 1st world war)
1763 - The jesuits used the British to delete France from having any form of control or being any part of the new world order
1990 AD to 2010 AD - 195 countries - 192 recognized as a UN country
Possibility of the 5 super states forming - The EU (European Union already exists), the NAU (North American union) and the ACU (African continent union) is the next step being formed now, later an Austral-Asian unification and a South american unification anywhere between 2010 to 2030 the 5 super states will come about, which are stepping stones to a new world order
The 1984 world map according to George orwells fictional book 1984, I personally see this happening instead of a 5 super state world, a 3 superstate world
