What Happens?

It is probably the oldest road map in the world. These 11 parchment scrolls were copied in 1265 from one or several Roman originals and they show the earth as known in Antiquity.
With the authorization of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek (Austrian National Library), Euratlas is proud to present an on-line
real-size version of the Peutingerian Map. You will have a direct access to each of the 11 scrolls and you will be able to enlarge every region simply by clicking on it to see the ancient localities and their modern names. Moreover, for each map area, you will get the possibility to display a black and white version with the transcription of the main towns.
Have a look at this antique map and enjoy!

2) Map of the Gallia Narbonensis Roads about 100 AD
As an Euratlas-Info member you can download a large map (1553 x 1783 x 72 px) of Southeastern Gaul and Nortwestern Italy in year 100 with the main Roman roads and the place names ancient and modern. It will be particularly interesting to compare it with the corresponding areas of the Tabula Peutingeriana.
