There is a story behind every map. Generation after generation, we have imprinted ourselves on the land we live upon. Our depictions of that land, in maps, have recorded social attitudes and social change like no other source.
This lecture will trace a very personal history of England through some of its most fascinating and beautiful maps, showing how the landscape, local history, and cartography can illuminate the very nature of England. Dr Jonathan Healey is a University Lecturer in English Local and Social History.
