It seems quite a few of you share my fascination with maps. Here are some more I found this morning.
Ancient Egypt, with the sites still popular with tourists today.
(This one can be enlarged, with two clicks)
Britain in 600 AD, showing the areas conquered by foreign invaders, and those still inhabited by the original people.
A map of the world shown as flat. Even today, some people continue to believe the Earth is flat.
A very old map of London, from 1572. Look how small it was!
And for my American readers, a 1767 map of New York City, before Independence.
