The Vision of Britain Through Time site presents a range of documents and primary source materials that tell the story of the nation from 1801 to 2001. This particular corner of the site brings together a multitude of maps, organized into three sections. In the Topographic Maps area, visitors can look over items such as R. Wilkinson's 1812 survey of Great Britain and the Ordnance Survey of Scotland, compiled from 1925 to 1948. The Boundary Maps area is quite a gem, as it contains over a dozen artifacts, including boundary surveys of England and Wales from 1885, 1868, and 1832. Finally, the site also includes a How to use the map library area that provides a nice introduction to the most effective use of these materials. [KMG]
