...with John Leafield.
A brief introduction to mapping from prehistoric times up to the earliest maps of Britain:
the first extant map of Britain with genuine cartographic content (the ‘Gough’ map); the
beginning of professional mapping in Tudor times; the evolution of maps of Oxfordshire
(and contiguous areas) from the 16th to 19th centuries; the origin and development of the
Ordnance Survey; mapping today up to and including Google.
