Illustration for article titled A Stunning Alt-History Map Showing A Completely Uncolonized Africa

A map created by Swedish artist Nikolaj Cyon shows what Africa would have looked like had it not been colonized by Europeans. Shown upside down to skew the Eurocentric bias, it was compiled using historical, linguistic, and ethnographic data.


Cyon even created an alternative historical timeline to make it work. Check out BigThink's fantastic feature about it.
