Maps, Maps, Maps

I could have put this as a Blogosphere post but was afraid it would get lost in the shuffle. Over at the Ancient World Online, Chuck Jones alerts us to the  publication of Boatwright, et al., The Romans: From Village to Empire: A History of Rome from Earliest Times to the End of the Western Empire from the fine folks at OUP, but even better, the maps that accompany the volume are available online and can be downloaded. Here’s the post at AWOL with links to the maps … they’re rather large pdfs and I really can’t imagine that they aren’t useful.
