Alcuni colleghi lavorano molto con cartine fotocopiate sulle quali scrivono a mano, tracciano linee, inseriscono foto, etc. Oggi possiamo fare la stessa identica cosa ma in maniera digitale, con il vantaggio di poter condividere la mappa che abbiamo creato, inserirla nel nostro blog di classe o sulla pagina dedicata del sito della scuola. Lo strumento che vi consiglio di utilizzare si chiama Scribble Maps. Si tratta di una web app molto semplice da usare, versatile e, soprattutto gratuita.

table de Peutinger - légion VIII augusta La Table de Peutinger, (Tabula Peutingeriana ou Peutingeriana Tabula Itineraria), connue aussi sous le nom de « Carte des étapes de Castorius » ou de « Table Théodosienne », est une copie réalisée vers 1265 par des moines de Colmar, d’une carte romaine réalisée vers 350, elle-même probablement la copie remise à jour d’une grande carte du monde peinte sur le portique d’Agrippa à Rome vers 12 de notre ère, où figurent les routes et les villes principales de l’Empire romain. Pas moins de 555 villes et 3500 autres particularités géographiques sont indiquées, comme les phares et les sanctuaires importants, souvent illustrées d’une vignette. Présentation ^

tabula peutingeriana Tabula Peutingeriana (section)—top to bottom: Dalmatian coast, Adriatic Sea, southern Italy, Sicily, African Mediterranean coast The Tabula Peutingeriana (Peutinger table, Peutinger Map) is an illustrated itinerarium (in effect, a road map) showing the cursus publicus, the road network in the Roman Empire. The original map (of which this is a unique copy) was last revised in the fourth or early fifth century.[1] It covers Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia (the Middle East, Persia, India). The map is named after Konrad Peutinger, a German 15–16th-century humanist and antiquarian. The tabula is thought to date from the fifth century.[2] It shows the city of Constantinople, founded in 328, yet it still shows Pompeii, not rebuilt after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79. The prominence of Ravenna, seat of the Western Empire from 402, suggested a fifth-century revision to Levi and Levi.

These (they say) came to our seas from the sea which is called Red, and having settled in the country which they still occupy, at once began to make long voyages. Among other places to which they carried Egyptian and Assyrian merchandise, they came to Argos,which was at that time preeminent in every way among the people of what is now called Hellas.
