Rome and roads
I've just spent far too long playing around with the raw fabulousness that is Stanford's interactive map of the transport network in Roman times. Going from Rome to Londinium starting in January would take about 42 days. I would have thought that journey would be almost all by road but it's shortened, at least initially, by taking a boat along the coast. Then it's a long trek across France. Too, too fab.
