History Kicks Ass!

Found An Interactive Map on Spartacus While I Was Looking Up Directions On Google.  Day, made.

Oh. My. Goodness.  There goes my productivity this morning.  Here’s an interactive map of Spartacus’ battles.

Each battle is marked with the original ancient name of the city (*sigh*) and comes with an info bubble about the battle.  The information is from Wikipedia and a magazine article on Spartacus’ battles.

Last week, Google Maps told me to turn left when that would have meant driving off an overpass.  Well, thanks to this map of Spartacus’ battles, all is now forgotten!
