Welcome to Roman Roads.Net!

How appropriate that the domain romanroads.net was available: the roman road system was one of the very first organised networks in the world.

We know about many Roman Roads, but I believe there are more waiting to be discovered – for example smaller, shorter ‘feeder’ roads that would allow access to the main routes to the local market towns. The movement of foodstuffs, and grain in particular, would have been significant in an economy that was based on large agricultural surpluses.

I will start by looking at the Antonine Itinerary.
