Bored at work? Here’s a Google-style digital map of the Roman Empire to play with | CityMetric
If you’re anything like me, you’ll have spent many years fretting over a single vexed question: What’s the best route from Camulodunum to Korinion? Should you take the direct route via Verlamium? Or the more southerly one, through Londinium? It’s a tricky one.
Well worry no longer – for the Roman Empire has finally joined the 21st century. This map is a sort of Google Maps of antiquity. It’s fully searchable, and comes with multiple zoom levels.
