Map of Roman sites​

The below map features all Roman sites across Africa, Europe and the Middle East. The map contains sites related to the Roman empire until the foundation of the Byzantine empire in 330 AD. In the west, sites have been included that remained under the control of the western Roman empire until 476 AD. Byzantine sites were included on the map created for Byzantine sites. Even though the Byzantines called themselves Romans until the end, this helps us to distinguish between these different or changing cultures. For ease of use, the map was categorized in:

  1. Roman aqueducts  and water supply (Includes cisterns and aqueducts.)
  2. Roman amphitheatres
  3. Roman army / defences (Includes Roman city defences, legionary castellum, fortresses and for example Hadrian’s wall.)
  4. Roman baths
  5. Roman domus and villa
  6. Roman theatres
  7. Roman temples
  8. Roman / ancient history museums
  9. Roman cities / areas (Includes both minor and larger archaeological areas combining a mix of the above categories. In many cases these feature a museum, temples, bath complexes, an amphitheatre, housing and a theatre.)
  10. Other Roman ruins / remains (Includes Roman triumphal arches, Roman towers, Roman lighthouses, Roman mines, Roman mausoleums etc. In other words, everything not defined in the other 9 categories.)
