Ancient World Mapping Center

I was about to show one of my favourite maps in class the other day, of the Expansion of the Empire in the Age of Augustus, and the link here on the NT Gateway returned an error. So when I got back to my office, I went in search of the page at the Ancient World Mapping Centre and found that the entire site had been revamped, now using Word Press and with tons more maps and lots of updates. So here is the updated entry on my Maps page, with the new links:

At the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, this centre “exists to promote cartography and geographic information science as essential disciplines within the field of ancient studies”.  Many useful, high resolution, well documented reproductions of maps from print resources and elsewhere. Ever growing resource, now revised and expanded utilizing a blog format (November 2012). See especially maps of the Expansion of the Empire in the Age of Augustus, Greece, the Aegean and Western Asia Minor and Roman Empire in AD 69.
