Early printed maps of Ireland: a Skerries perspective

by Bill Haneman

This talk presents printed maps of Ireland from the earliest 15th century examples based on the work of Ptolemy, through the ‘golden age of cartography’, the Down Survey, and local charts until the time of the Ordnance Survey.

These maps provide a window into the history of cartography, the history and perception of Ireland in the Early Modern Period and beyond, and the recording and usage of Fingal place names

All welcome.
