People have used maps for millennia -- they just weren't recorded on paper
with four-color reproduction. The first time someone drew the route of a
river in the sand, they were using a map.

Hey Anne,

Oh YEAH! How interesting... A map from when no one in Europe had a
notion of how to utilize a map!

Then, too - non-existent Roman armies marching up through Bronze-Age
Pre-Halstatt ancestors of the Celts and likely also the ancestors of the
Latin and allied speakers of Italy into a Germany where there weren't
-yet- any German-speakers.

The temporo-spatial aspects of such a map should be especially interesting!

This has gotten so, SO FAR Off-Topic that I'm not going to comment on
this any further!
