Wiki article with a very nice late 1500s map
Quite by accident, I found on Wikipedia this extremely cool map of the March of Arcona made in the 1590s.
Thought I would share it with you all.
Ooo, thanks, man. I'm gonna lift a whole bunch of symbols from this to make into brushes.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

Fantastic. Glad I could help. :-) Would love to see the brush set when you've progress on it.
