Welcome to Talessman's Atlas of World History! I'm Thomas Lessman, an amateur historian with over 20 years of experience researching world history. I've had a passion for history ever since childhood, especially in designing historical maps. It would be a shame to let my research go to waste, so I decided to share my work and knowledge through this website.
* Update 2-14-10: I haven't forgotten about the maps! It's been several months since I've had a chance to work on them; personal matters are currently more urgent. Not to worry, the project will resume in time!
License/Permissions update: Apparently I've been confused about correct licensing and usage of these maps. I will research proper licensing when I get a chance. In the meantime, this is may help: I have no problem with people using these maps in projects such as classroom assignments, bible studies, personal projects, etc. Any open-source or free projects (ex: Wikipedia, LiberKey, etc) may use these maps as needed. Teachers may use these maps to help with their classroom activities. THE ONLY REQUIREMENTS I have are: 1. You must include source information (Author: Thomas Lessman, Source Website: www.WorldHistoryMaps.info. 2. If you alter the maps, you must get my permission, and 3. Any use of these maps for projects that are not free or open-source (including books, games, etc.) must have my permission and may have to pay for usage.
For any other questions, comments, requests, etc., you may email me at email@example.com. Please be patient and do not expect an immediate response!
