Jeremy Crampton on maps, permissions and Asterix

Asterix_-09-_Asterix_and_The_Big_Fight_-_00c_-_map.jpg_1400Slow linking to these, but Jeremy Crampton has two follow-up posts to my earlier sharing of Mary Beard’s interesting piece on the last stages of writing a book – SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome.

In the first he talks about maps and permissions, and in the second mentions a map he enjoyed as a child. I remember the one on the left well…

Looking for a copy to post online I also found this larger one which gives a wider frame. I hope the account of Rome in The Birth of Territory is a little more geographically-nuanced, but it will be interesting to see what Beard does with the spatial in her history.
