Sketch Map: The Roman Gallic Wars for Italy

Ludwig Heinrich Dyck’s book, “The Roman Barbarian Wars: The Era of Roman Conquest,” features five maps to accompany the text. The maps show localities, tribes, battle sites and natural features relevant to the narrative. Dyck’s sketch map, “Roman Gallic Wars for Italy, BC 391-191,” was used by Pen & Sword to make the professional map in the book. Because of space constraints, the sketch maps actually contain more information than the book maps.

Roman Gallic Wars ItalyThe map “Roman Gallic Wars for Italy, BC 391-191,” covers Rome’s wars with the Celtic Gauls who had settled in northern Italy.  The period begins with the 391/90 invasion of Italy and sack of Rome by the Gallic Senones and ends with the defeat of the Boii in 191. Thereafter northern Italy, once Celtic, was absorbed into the Roman world.
