Why doesn’t the map have Cartagena, Spain on it?

Hi Gutbloom — thanks for your question. I’m still getting the hang of this whole mapmaking thing, but I’ve been trying to keep the maps as simple as possible so they’re easy to view on smartphone screens. Also, Wikipedia says Cartagena wasn’t founded until 227 B.C., so (assuming that’s accurate) the city didn’t exist during the period this map pictures.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
