This is a fragment of the most antique road map in existence, Peutinger's Tabula. More precisely, it is the XII century copy of a Roman road map. The incredible thing is that it is the only antique map that can be compared with a 21st century road map.

Our idea was to utilise the same map that the Roman legions used to retrace the steps along the same roads that today we use constantly.

During your cybernetic navigation you can see the same things that the Roman legionnaires saw 2000 years ago.

Peutinger's Tabula was originally a long parchment map 6.80 metres by 34 centimetres. During the 19th century the map was divided into 11 segments for preservation purposes plus one segment reconstructed in 1916 because the original was lost.
