Rise of the Continents

Some 250 million years ago, the continents we know today were concentrated into a single landmass - Pangaea - surrounded by the immense ocean of Panthalassa. But about 200 million years ago, this supercontinent started to break apart: new ocean basins were forming, mountains rocketed skywards, and seven new landmasses - our continents - were created over eons from the remnants of the old. This series puts the giant jigsaw puzzle of Pangaea back together, revealing why each continent is unique.
