Designed and executed by Walter Scheidel and Elijah Meeks in collaboration with a group of IT specialists and students at Stanford University, ORBIS: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World reconstructs the time cost and financial expense associated with a wide range of different types of travel in antiquity.

It broadly reflects conditions around 200 CE but also covers a few sites and roads created in late antiquity. To access the map, click here!
