It may have occurred to some of you that I prefer "smaller scale" maps of towns and things. At least those are the ones I enjoy making most. I find they are more intimate - more closely linked to the people who live there. So I do a lot o' web trawling on such topics.

I stumbled across a few things while randomly looking such things up. I thought I would share some interesting ones I found.

This site shows detailed plans (http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/atlas_ahrb_2005/index.cfm?CFID=305361&CFTOKEN=27033328) and whatnot of towns founded after the Conquest of wales by Edward I. It was created by the Archeological Data Service of the University of York. I don't know what software and such they used - maybe some of our GIS specialists can enlighten us there. It is very interesting.

And this is the links section (http://users.trytel.com/~tristan/towns/towns.html#links) of an interesting site on medieval towns. It is quite extensive. The site itself has some very interesting articles.

Hope you find them useful.

Nice links. I was actually going to do my honours thesis on Keith Lilley's work (the first one). A lot of potential there for mapmakers.
