I recieved my roman map yesterday. I really love the map and don't have any regrets getting it, but I do think the way the map is packaged needs to be changed. When I got my map the cardboard tube was damaged and one of the plastic lids was gone thus exposing the map. The map it self was then damaged. Not too badly though. There is white marks from where the map was bent from the tube getting ruffed up. Thankfully the white marks are mostly in the seas and not interfering with any information that is on the map. I believe a plastic tube would be more sturdy then the cardboard one. Like I said I don't regret getting the map and intend on getting it framed and putting it in my living room. I love it a lot and it's going to come very handy durning my studies in school.
