Thirteen Digitally Annotated Medieval Mappaemundi

“Virtual Mappa 2.0 is a collaborative project originally in partnership with the British Library, where over a dozen scholars have collaborated to digitally edit a cohort of thirteen early English maps of the world, including the famous Cotton Map, the Cotton Zonal Map and the massive Hereford Map, as well as the Psalter World and List maps, several Higden maps, Mission T-O maps, the Sawley Map, and the Tournai (Jerome) Map of Asia.

Inscriptions on each map are fully annotated with transcription, translation and notes, and contents are searchable across maps. This project is ongoing, with more maps in the queue to be added later this year.

This edition is open-access and free for anybody to use – you can find it here: https://sims2.digitalmappa.org/36” (MEDTEXTL-L)
