World map 1000 AD

Map by: Thomas Lessman


III – European Information

   * European information is derived primarily from:

  1.   Euratlas.  Periodical Historical Atlas of Europe.  Map of “Europe in 1000 AD”.

        Note:  User:Bogomolov.PL has discovered possible errors in some of my European borders

               compared to this source, due to the different geographical layout of the maps.

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

Year 1000 (M) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Julian calendar. In the proleptic Gregorian calendar, it was a non-leap century year starting on Wednesday (like 1800). It was also the last year of the 10th century as well as the last year of the 1st millennium of the Christian Era ending on December 31, but the first year of the 1000s decade.
