The Peutinger Table, or Peutinger Map is currently on display in MADGIC. It is the only map of the Roman world to come down to us from Antiquity. Its origin is approximately c63-12 BC, then rediscovered after 1265 AD.

The map features land routes across Europe, North Africa and the Near East.

OmnesViae.org is an interactive version of the Peutinger Table, each location on the paper map, geotagged.

The Medieval Peutinger map: imperial Roman revival in a German Empire is a new book, recently acquired by the Carleton University Library, which "challenges the artifact's self-presentation as a Roman map by examining its medieval contexts of crusade, imperial ambitions, and competition between the German-Roman Empire and the papacy".
