History of Britain in Maps

£0.00

Available in Stock

From the earliest known map of pre-Roman roads to one showing the pattern of voting in the 2016 EU Referendum, 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.
