This Reddit post spawned some super interesting discussion and really I just want to go through it all with a fine-toothed comb and learn everything about what these population booms and busts over time tell us about the history of the world πŸ˜‡ The graphic itself may not be super accurate (as you can imagine, we don’t exactly have reliable census figures from 10,000 BCE) but the discussion is great.
