Dude. 30. South Carolina. I travel and work. Whiskey, weed, Rock and Roll. Campfires, girls, root beer, motorcycles, sex, the blues, traveling, buildings, guitars, barbarians, art, maps, knives and swords, games, preparedness, survivalism, tattoos, zombies, ancient history, life. It's all awesome.

Most of this stuff does not belong to me. If it belongs to you, and you want it back, you can keep it.

World Map after Macrobius
The Ancient Greeks conceived the idea of a southern landmass to counterbalance the land in the north.  Aristotle named this imagined southern land ‘Antarktikos’, as the northern lands lay under the constellation of ‘Arktos’ (the bear).  The ‘Climatic’ or ‘zonal’ map, which divided the world into five climate zones, was also developed in this classical period.  In these simple maps the world was divided into five equal parts.  Cold zones in the north and south were separated by temperate zones and an equatorial zone so hot that it was impassable.  This is the earliest example of a zonal map in the Library’s collection and is by Ambrosius Theodosius Macrobius, a fifth-century Roman philosopher.  In this version, published in 1492, Europe, Africa and Asia are shown in the upper hemisphere.  The vast southern continent lies in the lower hemisphere.  An ocean called Alveus separates the continents.

Bristol based artist Gareth Wood, aka Fuller, has spent over 500 hours creating a hand-drawn personalised map of the city. The cartographer claims his depiction was inspired by the residents view of the West Country’s capital, seeking to create a psycho-geographical landscape.

The map will be exhibited in a grand unveiling at It’s All 2 Much gallery in Stokes Croft, on the 31st of May
