A Review of Irish and Worldwide Historic Maps – Leslie Brown
October 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The maps reflect the extent of knowledge at a certain time and exhibit the overall development of a country or area. Ireland was an important part of the British Empire in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. This influenced the wide range of Irish maps produced and the attention paid to Ireland by the foremost mapmakers of the time.
