      Ancient Roman road map unveiled
      BBC, 26 November 2007

      The Tabula Peutingeriana is one of the Austrian National Library's
      greatest treasures. The parchment scroll, made in the Middle Ages, is
      the only surviving copy of a road map from the late Roman Empire. The
      document, which is almost seven metres long, shows the network of main
      Roman roads from Spain to India. It is normally never shown to the
      public. The parchment is extremely fragile, and reacts badly to
      daylight. But it has been on display for one day to celebrate its
      inclusion in Unesco's Memory of the World Register.
