To celebrate the release of my book, I thought I’d share a simple interactive map of the urbanism of the Roman world in the imperial period.

The full version, which is searchable, can be found here.

More information about how I defined ‘urbanism’, how I compiled the list of sites, and how I found coordinates and date-ranges for them can be found in my book.

There’s also much more information about each site in the catalogue that’s included in my book, such as short descriptions of each site, full details about their date-ranges and coordinates, evidence for their sizes, monuments, and civic statuses, select references, and a select bibliography.

If you’d like to refer to my work, please cite my book: Hanson, J. W., (2016), An Urban Geography of the Roman World, 100 B.C. to A.D. 300, (Oxford: Archaeopress).
