Two Publications of Interest
Anyone interested in G.I.S. reconstructions of the ancient world should check out an excellent review article published in the latest edition of Early Christian Studies. Written by UNC Ph.D. Alumna Sarah Bond and Peter Martens, the article situates the Historical Atlas of Ancient Christianity (ed. Berardino & Pilara) within the broader context of digital mapping projects of the ancient world.
In addition, historians of cartography will enjoy Ségolène Débarre’s Cartographier l’Asie Mineure : l’orientalisme allemand a l’epreuve du terrain (1835-1895), which sets the 19th century cartography of Asia Minor against a background of German and Ottoman imperialism.
