New rolled up Imperium Romanum 211 AD maps

The rolled up Imperium Romanum map was Sardis Verlags most popular product and virtually sold out since the first weeks of 2017.

Thus compared to the first edition from 2014 there are quite a few improvements that I will introduce below.

Shop Activated

Since by now Sardis Verlag has stopped selling its products directly, I have activated the shop in this page. You are able to purchase HD paper prints of the maps from the former Sardis Verlag catalogue and newly made deluxe canvas prints. For now you can only pay with the popular online payment system PayPal. However PayPal also allows the use of Debit or Credit cards, without the need of your own PayPal account.  Further options are planned  in the near future.  


A new home for my maps of the Ancient World

Welcome to,


this website is intended to offer a new and permanent home for my maps of the Ancient World. A replacement for that will be shut down in the near future. However, currently HD prints of all my maps are still available via In the coming months my related non commercial projects will also be presented here. 


As soon as Sardis Verlag stops to sell their products directly, you will be able to purchase them in a small integrated web shop on this site.  


In March the maps will again be sold on and other European marketplaces. Probably in summer a new edition of the Roman Empire map should be again become available on
