Major Roman Roads Subway Map Style

A very, very cool map of major Roman roads done in subway map style:

Made by Sasha Trubetskoy, statistics major and designer, artist, and geography and data nerd.

Really fascinating! I know there were also some Roman roadworks running at least partially across the land from east to west along Hadrian’s Wall in Britain, but I don’t know whether there ever was a complete major road there.

    Oh, there are lots of roman roads in Britain. I walked along one on Monday (its a cart track now), and drove home along one on Sunday (a tarmaced road and in constant use –The Icknield way).

      I love that there are places where Roman roads are still in use. 🙂
