Medieval Maps

I’ve always thought Medieval maps were very beautiful and their lack of accuracy interesting. The level of accuracy does improve the smaller the area being mapped which makes this weeks quiz from Medievalists.net possible.

  1. I thought it was really difficult too. Some of the countries were easy but I spent quite a bit of time on some of these trying fit the different countries into what I remember from various books and even way back to college classes that included one in Medieval art and one in Medieval literature. Once again thanks for playing the Sunday quiz.
