Roman Citizen Describes Ancient Ireland and Thule // Edge of Known World // 7 BC Strabo Geographica

Published on Aug 10, 2021
Here we have the Greek and likely Roman Citizen Strabo describing the edge of the world as Rome knew it in the first century, the windswept island of Ierne - and even further than that, the legendary island of Thule. Surrounded by a 'sea-lung', an impenetrable mix of solid and liquid, Thule and "Ultima Thule" later became synonymous with the furthest point north on the map.
