About the Medieval Atlas
   The Medieval Atlas is a directory of maps, charts, geographic drawings and illustrations, illuminations, and other cartographic representations of the world in general, and the geography of Europe in particular, during the Middle Ages. Both historical maps and period or "antique" maps are included.
   The directory links to maps on the web as well as to maps right here at the Medieval History site. Many maps are in the public domain and may be downloaded and used freely; however, please check each individual page for copyright notices and any terms of use for the map it displays.
