The world map (2000 BC)

World - 2000 BC

Just before 2000 BC, there seems to have been a terrible drought in northern Africa and Asia. States collapsed all over the place. In Egypt, the Old Kingdom collapsed into the First Intermediate period. In India, the Harappan civilization came to an end. In West Asia, the Akkadian Empire fell apart. And further north, in Central Asia, the Indo-Europeans began their great migration all over Europe and South Asia.
