(p.596) (p.597) Cartography
A Century of British Medieval Studies

P. D. A. Harvey

British Academy

This chapter examines the progress and developments in the study of medieval cartography in Great Britain during the twentieth century. Throughout the twentieth century the study of medieval cartography has been a wholly international activity. The three successive milestones in its development include the six-volume study of medieval world and regional maps by German Konrad Miller, the standard descriptive catalogue of late-medieval world maps edited by Frenchman Marcel Destombes, and the first volume of the History of Cartography. In all, British scholars have made a significant contribution to the study of medieval maps in the twentieth century, both intellectually and at the organizational level.

Keywords:   medieval cartography, Great Britain, world maps, regional maps, Konrad Miller, Marcel Destombes, History of Cartography
