History of Britain in Maps
Available in Stock
Including the earliest known map of pre-Roman roads and one showing Beeching's proposed cuts to the railways in the early 1960s, Philip Parker presents reproductions of around 90 maps and uses the complex information they contain to trace the history of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland from prehistory to the present day. The book illustrates how maps reflect not only the cartographer’s skill and geographical knowledge, but also the preoccupations of their times and, not infrequently, the political motives of their makers.
