The Mobile Map of Europe. This is quite a piece of work.
I’m sure if you analyzed it, it would be controversial in places. There are times when no-one can agree where a border is.
But it shows that, in reality, borders are actually as changeable as we believe they are constant.

Political borders that seem absolute – even today – are not, and this map is a great way to remind ourselves that history will not be denied.
