Eurasia is a land mass of 54,000,000 km² made up of the continents of Europe and Asia. Eurasia was formed about 350 million years ago after the merger of the continents: Siberia, Kazakhstan and Baltica (which merged with Laurentia, which is now North America to form EurAmerica). Eurasia is located in the north of the globe. The block name is a combination of the words "Europe" and "Asia". It is bordered on the far west by the islands of Ireland and the Atlantic Ocean, which extends with its southern arm, represented by the Mediterranean Sea with its various basins, on the east by the Bering Strait and some islands such as Kamchatka, Sakhalin and the Pacific Ocean, on the north it is bordered by France Joseph Islands and the Arctic Ocean, and on the south by Timor Islands and the Indian Ocean with its two arms represented by the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf Many geographers viewed it as one continent such as the Americas and Africa, since the two continents are not separated by a large ocean or sea. The Greeks divided the world into three regions: Asia, Europe and Africa, and this usage is still prevalent until now. It may mean regions or countries across the continents of Asia and Europe such as Russia, Turkey and Kazakhstan. There is also another division, Eastern and Western Eurasia. Western Eurasia represents Europe and the Middle East, and some add to them North Africa because the region is separated from the rest of Africa by the Sahara. Eastern Eurasia represents the rest of Asia except for the Middle East.
