If you want to know more about the history of the place where you live, try using the service “Point in history”. These are online maps that show which state owned the land at what time.
Open the site and simply click on any place on the map. The service will show a list of states and empires that once owned the territory.
Times are shown, including BC. The list also provides links to Wikipedia articles where you can read more about the selected period.
The developers state that they took the data from the historical boundaries project (https://github.com/aourednik/historical-basemaps), and all historical data should be treated with caution. Since ancient boundaries are even more controversial than modern ones, areas of civilizations actually overlap and changes in the geographical terrain can make adjustments.
