BNM is a blog by Jim Matthews found at http://byzantiumnovummilitarium.blogspot.com/search/label/Drawing?max-results=20 Covering the military history of the Byzantine Empire, the blog has an amazing array of Mr. Matthews' drawings that show fortifications, structures, and devices that were used by the Empire. While many of the maps and drawings are not immediately usuable in a game, the blog offers a wide array of inspiration for designing ships, fortifications, and other structures.

Good stuff, I've always liked the old Hellenistic motif for a setting.

gotta show this to my father in law, he's an expert on Byzans. He had an Byzans exibit half a year ago and recently wrote a 400+ page illustrated book about it. :)

Great maps and illos!

I love real castle maps with their thick walls and not-to-simetric structures

Useful resource thebax

Excellent site. But shouldn't the title be in Greek rather than Latin?
