Com era el món abans d’inventar-se el Facebook?

How was the world before the invent Facebook?

Doncs, el món era així. Espectacular.

La Taula de Peutinger mostra  la xarxa de carreteres de l’Imperi Romà. Es tracta d’una còpia del segle XIII d’un mapa original que data del segle IV, que abasta Europa, part d’Àsia (Índia) i Àfrica del Nord. El mapa porta el nom de Konrad Peutinger, un alemany del segle XV-XVI humanista i antiquari. El mapa va ser descobert en una biblioteca a Worms per Conrad Celtes, que no va poder publicar la seva troballa abans de morir, i va llegar el mapa el 1508 a Peutinger. Es conserva a la Biblioteca Nacional Österreichische, Hofburg, de Viena.
