Maps And History In South-West England
Edited by Roger Kain and Katherine Barker
This volume of essays considers the practical and political purposes for which maps were used, the symbolic and ideological roles of maps in the history of South-Western England and the ways in which map evidence can be used to recover facts about the past for use in the writing of history. The text is accompanied by 43 pages of maps and illustrations.
