Maps of the Ancient World

Tabulae-Geographicae - Maps of the Ancient World, a website dedicated to showcase the growing number of my historic maps. Many of them were originally created for and distributed by Sardis Verlag, a now defunct small German publisher. 

Attached to this site is a small shop, where you can buy HD prints or download versions of my maps.

Due to the global COVID-19 epidemic shipping to overseas destinations is currently severely limited. 


New Prints: Imperium Romanum 211 AD (2021)

Since I was slowly running out of the rolled up 2017 prints of Imperium Romanum 211 AD the time has come for a new edition. The differences are not as dramatic as between the old Sardis Verlag map from 2014 and the second generation map, but nevertheless noticeable. Four years worth of small improvements and additions have increased the level of detail in some areas considerably. Such changes are always included in each custom made prints or download version, all exported from the most recent files. But I have also included few larger changes reserved for a new edition.

Making Maps with QGIS

One of my first blog posts for the old Sardis Verlag homepage was a “Making of” for the Imperium Romanum map. It even existed as a promotional poster back then. Since I am asked this question from time to time, I thought it might be good to write something like this again.

All my maps are nearly entirely done with QGIS, an open source Geo Information System. However, for data collection I mostly use Google Earth Pro.

A small update

While not much has happened over the summer I could nevertheless make progress with all my maps. Recently I purchased a number of German ISBN numbers, with the intention to give my maps a better visibility and wider distribution, as during the days of Sardis Verlag. For this I plan to publish new versions of all wall maps over the course of the year, beginning with a new edition of Imperium Romanum 211 AD in the coming weeks. All will also be available as digital downloads


The upcoming Bronze Age map is still not finished, but has at least sufficiently progressed to get its own section on the website, which I am currently adding.
