BRLSI Geography & Adventure - Have Theodolite, Will Travel: Mapping Africa’s Magnificent Landscape

Date Description
08 November 2018

Nick Krebs, British Library

Combining fine art and scientific rigour, 19th century map making was formidable and often politically contentious. Not only were thousands of maps required, the areas requiring them presented terrains and climates to challenge any surveyor. British Library map specialist Nick Krebs explores East Africa through former War Office maps.
