The map of the Roman Empire is presented in full, vibrant color measuring a versatile ca. 24" x 36" (ca. 61 x 91 cm). With aqueous coating (a protective layer), this poster was professionally printed on 100# silk matte paper for durability and resistance to glare. Designed in 300 dpi resolution, this vividly detailed wall map of the Roman Empire is available for only US$49 (includes shipping cost).
High definition topographical relief and landcover data provided by the U.S. National Park Service has been used to create an exceptionally realistic foundation. The land within the borders of the Empire is slightly shaded to bring out the limits of Roman influence with the ease of a glance. From a distance, one sees the clear and stunning outline of the empire in Europe, Asia and Africa, but up close the detail and information provided is incredible. In addition, regional borders are shaded with various colors to provide five different eras of imperial expansion culminating in the reign of Trajan (and the empire's greatest extent) circa 117 AD.
This map is unique wall decor that is perfect for the den, office or classroom and will delight history buffs; particularly those with a special interest in the Ancient Roman Empire. With the map features presented in the original Latin, it will also make an educational tool for the student, teacher or professor.
