I - African Information
Note: Most of my African Information comes from The DK Atlas of World History map of The Development of Complex Societies in Africa; (Pg 160).

(Bantus, Berber Tribes, Chadians, Cushites, Daamat, Garamantes, Gur, Khoisan Peoples, Kwa, Libyans, Mandes, Nilotic Peoples, West Atlantic Peoples)
  • Nubian/Sudanese borders (Makuria, Nobatia, Alodia, Blemmyes, Bega, Axum, etc.) are derived from these sources:
1. The DK Atlas of World History map of "Northeast Africa, c. 500 CE"; (Pg. 161) 2. Denis Bellemare's Atlas historique de l'Antiquité tardive map of "Arabia in 540 AD"
  • Ghana's location is derived from John Nelson's map of the "Countries of the World, 1-1-500 CE", available at www.WorldHistoryMaps.com.


II - Asian Information

  • Arabian borders & Tribal locations are derived from a combination of these sources:
1. The MidEastWeb.org map of Arabia in 500 CE. 2. Denis Bellemare's Atlas historique de l'Antiquité tardive map of "Arabia in 540 AD"

Note: A very different set of information for Arabia is shown in each of those maps, even taking the 40-year difference between them. I used information in various Wikipedia articles about subject tribes and states to reconcile the maps and the borders I depict in this map.

  • Chinese borders are derived from the History & Commercial Atlas of China, map of S Ch'i & N Wei Dynasties in 500 A.D. (南齐和北魏-公元500年的边界), available on Huhai.net.
  • Hephthalite borders are derived from a mix of:
1. Northern borders are from the History & Commercial Atlas of China, map of S Ch'i & N Wei Dynasties in 500 A.D. (南齐和北魏-公元500年的边界), available on Huhai.net. 2. Eastern borders are derived from John Nelson's map of the "Countries of the World, 1-1-500 CE", available at www.WorldHistoryMaps.com.
  • India's borders are derived from these sources:
1. John Nelson's map of the "Countries of the World, 1-1-500 CE", available at www.WorldHistoryMaps.com. 2. The Historical Atlas of South Asia, maps of "The Gupta-Vakataka Age, c. A.D. 300-500" and "The age of Pusyabhuti and Calukyan ascendancy, c. A.D. 550-700", by Joseph Schwartzberg. 1. Eastern borders are derived from John Nelson's map of the "Countries of the World, 1-1-500 CE", available at www.WorldHistoryMaps.com. 2. Western and northern borders are from the Euratlas.com map of Europe in 500 AD
  • Southeast Asia information is from:
1. The Historical Atlas of South Asia, maps of "Southeast Asia to 650 AD." 2. The DK Atlas of World History map of "Southeast Asia to 650 CE", (Pg 241) and map of "The World in 500", (Pg 50).


III - European Information
Note: My primary source of information for Europe is the Euratlas.com map of Europe in 500 AD

  • Britain and Ireland borders are derived from these sources (which I highly recommend you examine for a better view than my wide-scale map can depict):
1. The EarlyBritishKingdoms.com map of Britain in 500 AD 2. User:Briangotts' map of Britain 500 CE.

Note: Much of the information in this map was cross-checked with Regnal Chronologies by Bruce Gordon.
