Now you can have hundreds of historical outline maps at your finger tips. Save yourself countless hours scouring the internet for the perfect printable map for your history lesson! Recommended by The Well-Trained Mind!

"I got mine today! I love them! I love the convenience! My son loves them! Why didn't I order these earlier instead of spending hours scouring the internet for maps that didn't quite work?" - Sharon

Dear Friend,

It is a proven fact that using historical outline maps help cement historical and geographical facts for students and adults alike. Just knowing that Alexander the Great conquered the whole known world is simply not enough. Seeing this enormous ancient empire on paper gives visual and non-visual students an edge in their learning.

The truth is... most educators know this, but struggle to find the printable maps they are looking for. Now your search is over. Finally, Blackline Maps of World History is now available in a beautiful hardcover book with bonus CD-ROM for easy printing.

"We are enjoying using the maps CD. Wish I had discovered it 13 years ago. I have spent so many hours searching for maps to go with our studies :-)" - Marilyn

With Blackline Maps of World History, your students can...

  1. See the landscape (i.e. the political boundaries, major cities, etc.) from the historical time period - instead of what the region is like today.
  2. Label places of historical significance on their outline maps.
  3. Color in empires, trace travel routes, draw scales and directional symbols, etc.
  4. Maps don't have to be boring... Students should feel free to experiment with colored markers, pencils, paint and even glitter (this is optional, of course!)
  5. Finished maps can be posted to the bulletin board or refrigerator or placed in a history notebook.

"I purchased the Knowledge Quest maps for this time period and they have been a terrific addition! All three kids (11,9,6) have learned a great deal." - Beth 

You may be wondering if you can find most of these printable maps for free online? The truth is, quite frankly, that you will not. I used to spend countless hours scouring the Internet for the appropriate map for our history lesson. Sometimes BINGO I would find just what I was looking for. But more often than not, there would be something about the map that I wished I could change. Maybe we were studying the United Kingdoms of Italy and the boundaries of the territories were not there. Or maybe we were studying South America during the times of the Spanish conquistadors and the only maps I could find had current political boundaries or no boundaries at all.

I began producing these printable maps in 2001 for Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World series. Since then, we have greatly improved the quality of the maps using vector graphics. These new upgraded computer generated maps are cleaner, clearer and easier to use than the original ones.

"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how WONDERFUL your maps are! I just love to use maps in school; it makes everything so clear. And your maps are perfect for each unit we study. It's great to have a resource like this instead of having to paw through numerous books to find maps and then have to shrink them or enlarge them to suit the need! I have recommended your maps to many people." - Sue
