That's a neat find Scoot  :thumbsup: Interesting to see it illustrated that way, also shows how a lot of our more modern transport net uses it as a starting point.

Printed it off for a friends grandson who's just started doing Rome at school  :thumbsup:

Nice map. I like to look at this map of Roman Britain for the fuller picture http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/romangl/map.html


It looks like the Romans didn't have a place anywhere near Oxford, how strange.  :o

And they built the Lydney Bypass about 1500 years before Gloucester County Council did!  ;D

This is even better as it show the entire Roman Empire http://dare.ht.lu.se/

After the Scottish show in Perth this year I went for a local drive and was mildly surprised to find signs to a Roman ruin. A short walk from the car and I was at the site of a Roman watch tower on a ridge overlooking the A9. It was Muir o' Fauld Signal Station and it linked all the fort and towers from Stirling up to Scone, north of Perth.

same pink cover as a normal landranger but the picy is roman ruins
hmm seems like they've updated it since I got mine.
the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady
take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.
