Unknown Soldiers Podcast Episode #42, "Give Me Back My Legions", Maps and Sources

The Roman Empire under Augustus Caesar. Look at the gray area beneath Denmark, you can see Arminius's coalition and the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest.

Rough (very rough) location of the short-lived Roman province of Germania.

Solid close-up of Germania. The yellow is "Roman Germany," the dotted red line is the Roman frontier after the Varus disaster. You can see Varus's rough line of march along that red arrow heading towards Kalkriese.

The final Teutoburg Battle near Kalkriese.
