An animated history of weapons

Monday, May 25, 2015

Mostly based on the book A History of the World in 100 Weapons by Chris McNab, The Atlantic has created this animation that takes us through the evolution of weaponry.
From the axe, which originated in 1,000,000 B.C., to today's killer drones, mankind's use of weapons has been varied and incredibly inventive. Weapons have changed history and aided in the rise and fall of civilizations. For example, gunpowder, a Chinese invention, led to the development of cannons and guns—revolutionizing warfare in the Middle Ages and beyond.
