Medieval London

A map of London about 1270 to 1300

One of the projects we are working on at the moment is a Map of Medieval London.  Following the success of the Map of Tudor London, we are producing a companion to show London at the height of the medieval period. 

The map will cover the same geographical extent as the map of Tudor London and at the same scale (our standard scale of 1:2500), and will also show Westminster about 1290.  We're also looking into showing Lambeth at the same period — the Archbishop of Canterbury's London home had been established by them, along with a small community to service it.

The map will be based on the map of London c.1270 which appeared in the Atlas of London up to 1520, but completely revised to take into account the many discoveries — archaeological and historical — that have been made over the past 35 years.

The team of historians working on the map is led by Professors Caroline Barron and Vanessa Harding with contributions by Professor Martha Carlin, Dr Nick Holder and Tim Tatton-Brown.

The map will be published in October 2019, price £9.99.  We'll let you know exactly when it will be available.
