In The Beginning was Pangaea.

Actually Pangaea wasn’t formed until approximately 250,000,000 years ago, and there was dry land long before that. I just liked the phrase as a title.

Here is a video of the past 600,000,000 years and where the plates might be headed over the next 100,000,000 years.

Earth’s landmasses were not always what they are today. Continents formed as Earth’s crustal plates shifted and collided over long periods of time. This video shows how today’s continents are thought to have evolved over the last 600 million years, and where they’ll end up in the next 100 million years.

Once we’ve moved the continents, we can have a look at how the human race settled the world.
