Gough Map presentation to U3A

Posted on 4 February 2011 by

On 27 January, Nick Millea gave a presentation to the Oxford branch of the University of the Third Age (U3A) when he spoke on 'Bodley’s map collection: a national cartographic treasure house', the first half of which was devoted to the Gough Map and promotion of the "Linguistic Geographies" project. It was the project which dominated the post-talk questions session, with audience members looking to learn about the potential of pigment analysis, Roman and Indian cartographic legacy, and medieval cartographic intelligence gathering. There's a lot of interest out there in what the project is delivering, and the launch of the web tool is keenly anticipated.
