Pinpoint historic battles

If it’s possible to get battle fatigue just by looking at a website, this interactive map will test your endurance. It aims to pinpoint every battle ever fought using data from Wikipedia to create a ‘Geography of Violence’ that currently includes 12,702 references. You can see just how bloody individual countries have been, and use a slider to select a specific period of history. Each entry is colour-coded to indicate how recently a battle took place and, by clicking a location, you can discover exactly what happened and when.
