Map of Europe: 1000 AD to present day

The video entitled Map of Europe: 1000 AD to present day is impressive. It would, I find, have been even better if it showed the date on which each series of geopolitical changes unfolded.

Now wouldn't it be fascinating to have a map like that displaying the languages spoken across Europe (or any other large landmass) over the decades and centuries?
