    What regions are the most important to history at different times?

Whether this mean emphasis on Europe "euro-centrism", or the Middle East(never heard a term for this one) or Africa, "Afrocentrism" or more than one region, what...

    Should Eurasia be divided into 3 historical regions.

    Say what you will about the correctness of the asia europe divide, it seems the eurasia functions as three distinct regions for most of our history. Whatever continental model you support we can all agree that geography has a rather large role in a peoples history. More importantly geographic...

    Which regions in the world hold the most potential for archaeological discoveries?

    What are the chances of places like India, China and other similarly overpopulated countries hiding tons of ancient artefacts under their cities?
