map of europe in ancient times?


Hey. Can you people share a map of Europe in ancient times? any time around 400bc, 300bc or by the end of the western roman empire would be great. this are the perios that interest me the most and seeing all the nations placed at the same time would be awesome.

Okamido - I think you'd have your work cut out to find evidence for Gaelic in Scotland that early (i.e. as shown by Lessman).

It is interesting that he chose that specific term, perhaps a form of generic catch-all? If however, you have speakers of Goidelic in both Dal-Riata and Ulster by the end of the 6th century...what might a better term for them be?

It is just conceivable that there was Goidelic in Dal Riata, but pretty unlikely, I think. Most of the placename evidence we have suggest a wholly Brythonic island of Britain in pre-Roman times, or so I've been convincingly informed. Difficult to know about languages in the past, obviously, but I rather think that the weight of such evidence as there is works against early Goidelic up there.

I don't have any books on this subject so I have been running back and forth on the net looking for tidbits. I found one resource: Gillies, William (1993). "Scottish Gaelic". In Martin J. Ball and James Fife (eds.). The Celtic languages. London: Routledge. pp. 145–227, that seems to push the migration (and thus Goidelic in Scotland) as early as the 3rd century. This seems like a major outlier as I have never come across this date before and since I can't find an actual copy online, I can't really verify it.
