Two Publications of Interest
Anyone interested in ancient space and geography should take a look at Dr. Daniel Gargola’s new book, The Shape of the Roman Order: The Republic and Its Spaces, out soon from UNC Press. Featuring several maps produced by the Ancient World Mapping Center, this fascinating monograph examines how Roman Republican elites conceived of the territories and spaces under their control. The book is available for preorder here.
Those who enjoyed Dr. Richard Talbert’s recent work on Roman portable sundials may be interested in a recent write-up of his work in Smithsonian Magazine; it is available here.
