Go Roman Around

This is very cool.

René Voorburg of has created an awesome interactive online map that allows you to plot routes using the Roman roads, cities, water routes, and forts as shown on the Tabula Peutingeriana. The Tabula, also known as the Peutinger map, is a medieval copy of a Roman Road map from 300 AD.

Now you can see how to travel from Jerusalem to Rome (Romani Ite Domum!).

So how do you say Google maps in Latin anyway?
