Map Quest

Record #:
The Peutinger map is the only surviving map made by the Romans of their own world in AD 300 and is kept at the Austrian National Library in Vienna. The map was discovered by Konrad Celtis, a treasure hunter who bequeathed the map to Konrad Peutinger, after whom it is named. According to Richard Talbert, a UNC history professor, the purpose of the map was not geography; rather, it served to brag about the glory of Rome and the empire it had become.
