Featured Book

History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Volume 1) by Edward Gibbon is a great book for anyone who is interested in the Roman Empire.

It is quite dense, but written very clearly - definitely not an easy read but worth it! 

You can find the book for free on iTunes

Roman Empire Map

Today's post I'd like to share an old map of the Roman Empire when it was at its largest.  I am a massive fan of maps, and this one I think shows the extent of the roman empire in a particularly stylish way.

It is based approximately in the year AD 107 and you can find a larger resolution version here
