Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World for iPad

If you like maps of antiquity, you know that the Barrington Atlas is the Gold Standard. And the weighty tome has now been converted into an app for the iPad. From the website:

“In 102 interactive color maps, this app re-creates the entire world of the Greeks and Romans from the British Isles to the Indian subcontinent and deep into North Africa. Unrivaled for range, clarity, and detail, these custom-designed maps return the modern landscape to its ancient appearance, marking ancient names and features in accordance with modern scholarship and archaeological discoveries. Geographically, the maps span the territory of more than seventy-five modern countries. Chronologically, they extend from archaic Greece to the Late Roman Empire.”

If I owned an iPad, I’d buy this, because it’d be a wonderful convenience to have it. But I don’t. But maybe you do. So I wrote this post.

One Response to Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World for iPad

  1. Over at http://www.runningreality.org we’re showing changing national borders, city growth, battles, armies, ships, battles, etc over time from 3000BC to today — literally any day in history. We’re a small project team, but as we get data filled in it shows the growth and evolution of human civilization. We can’t match the Barrington Atlas for detail in the late Roman Empire, but we have the whole evolution of Rome plus China, the Arab world, native American peoples, etc..
