The Gough Map

by

The Gough Map of Great Britain, thought to date from the 14th century, is the oldest surviving road map of Great Britain and one of the earliest to show Britain in a geographically recognizable form.

An interactive, searchable edition of the Gough Map is now available online. Note that east is at the top of the map, not north!
