  • This is a nice activity but why exactly was this map chosen? I noticed that it  includes some long-deceased countries. It appears to be Europe in 1914... I would recommend it is changed to a modern map of Europe.

    • Hi petite12,
      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :) The map in this resource is intended to reflect more the Europe that the Romans would have encountered. I hope this helps :)

    • Could this be updated to a more modern map? Then children could practice using atlases to identify the modern countries as well as colouring the extent of the Roman Empire.

      I have Polish and Hungarian children in my class, neither of those countries appear on this map since, as petite12 said, it is from around 1914 so Poland is part of Germany and Hungary is part of Austria-Hungary. The situation on this map bears little relation to anything the Romans would have encountered.

      I'll be using a different map for this activity this week but I think you should update this for the future.

      Thanks for your lovely request - I'll ask our design team to take a look and see if we can make this change for you :)

    • I think your response time on this is great, but you're using a map now that has Savoy and the States of the Church on it. Looking at Wikipedia this places it between the 8th century and 1870. That would be after the collapse of the Roman Empire but way before the modern day so it isn't relevant to the Roman Empire time period and can't be used to identify current countries using modern atlases. It seems like a strange choice.

    • Hi Caidan2,
      I apologise if this has caused any problems. I'll let our History team know about it right away and they will get it checked as soon as they can!

    • The new map also doesn't have the north African coast, so it can't actually show the extent of the Roam Empire at the moment.

      I used this modern map for the activity today:
