Map History / History of Cartography
THE Gateway to the Subject

Old maps, early maps - non-current maps in general - are the subject of this site. Whether you are an academic, family historian, collector, teacher, parent or surfer - WELCOME! Use this site to find the worthwhile information about old maps, both on the web and in the real world. The site's 100 'pages' offer comment and guidance, and over 5000 annotated links - selected for relevance and quality. As the information is logically organised in a directory structure, you should easily find what you want. For an overview, check out What the site is about.

Follow the links to the left; or use the Index (and perhaps find unexpected things as well); or explore via the Sitemap to see the full range. In addition, you can search across the whole of this site:

Please note that there are no pictures of maps on this site (but see Map image sites for hundreds of annotated links to them). Alternatively, Map articles gives easy access to the growing body of free text on the web.

This site is eleven years old and is updated continuously. Add it to your favorites or, if relevant, insert a link from your own page. Comments are very welcome but specific map enquiries cannot be answered.
