The Hereford Mundi Map

The Hereford Mundi Map is one of the oldest European medieval map of worlds. Such a fascinating piece of graphics and illustration as the creatures and writing are very old. A map that doesn’t just contain knowledge of where towns and cities are but also it’s history of certain events that have happened in the past. There is no specific timeline or dating to these events so the map is past and present to that time. So much has been recorded on this treasured map, even a circle of life in religion as to who goes to heaven and hell.

I am hopefully going to visit this magnificent piece with the university soon and see it’s extraordinary detail. I shall upload photo’s ^^.
