Harvard sponsors Roman and Medieval cartography site

Harvard University has announced the Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilization (DARMC), a website that "offers a series of maps and geodatabases bearing on multiple aspects of Roman and medieval civilization in the broadest terms."

The first phase of this ongoing project builds on Richard J. A. Talbert's Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World, offering interactive maps of Roman and medieval civilizations, allowing users to specify geographic areas or peoples.
