    A global population of one million “with an M” at 1AD?

    Seriously?

    The city of Rome alone had a million people.

    The low global estimate is 170 million, going as high as 400 million.

    Yes, there’s a point that current population of 7 billion plus is greater, but by a factor of twenty, not 7000.
