    Hi all

    I saw this advertised last night on BBC4 (in the UK, sorry dunno if it's elsewhere) - a new Series looking into cartography.

    Next Monday, 20:30 (GMT) on BBC Four

    1/4. The story of the Hereford Mappa Mundi, the largest intact Medieval wall map in the world.

    Oh! They've included Descelier's world map from 1550! I've always liked it. While its interpretation of Scandinavia is hilarious, many other areas are simply stunning, especially considering it's from 1550 o.O

    Thanks, Jezelf for posting this find!
