The interactive Mapped Timeline of the Roman Empire was created as a final project for a seminar course, Practicum in Digital History at North Carolina State University, under Dr. Matthew Booker during the Fall 2013 semester. I used several programs to put the slideshow together, including Timeline 3D for Mac and Keynote. The map in the background is a Creative Commons gif from Wikipedia and the timeline events are from the Timeline section of Boatwright et al. 2012.
