In ninety nine full-color maps unfold over one hundred seventy five pages, the Barrington Atlas re-creates the total global of the Greeks and Romans from the British Isles to the Indian subcontinent and deep into North Africa. It spans the territory of greater than seventy five smooth nations. Its huge structure (13 1/4 x 18 in. or 33.7 x 46.4 cm) has been custom-designed by way of the major cartographic provider, MapQuest.com, Inc., and is unmatched for variety, readability, and aspect. Over 70 specialists, aided by means of an equivalent variety of specialists, have labored from satellite-generated aeronautical charts to come the trendy panorama to its historical visual appeal, and to mark historic names and lines in line with the main updated historic scholarship and archaeological discoveries. Chronologically, the Barrington Atlas spans archaic Greece to the past due Roman Empire, and less than regular scales (1:500,000 and 1:1,000,000) are used to symbolize so much areas. because the 1870s, all makes an attempt to map the classical international comprehensively have failed. The Barrington Atlas has ultimately accomplished that elusive and not easy aim. it all started in 1988 on the collage of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, less than the path of the prestigious old historian Richard Talbert, and has been constructed with nearly $4.5 million in investment help. The ensuing Barrington Atlas is a reference paintings of everlasting price. It has an incredibly large attract every person world wide with an curiosity within the old Greeks and Romans, the lands they penetrated, and the peoples and cultures they encountered in Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia. students and libraries may still locate it crucial. it's also for college kids, tourists, enthusiasts of excellent cartography, and somebody desirous to retrace Alexander's eastward marches, pass the Alps with Hannibal, traverse the japanese Mediterranean with St. Paul, or give some thought to the roads, aqueducts, and safeguard works of the Roman Empire.
