A Medieval Atlas



The map below depicts the general boundaries of the various nations of Europe in the Middle Ages. Click the text links below the map to go to a directory of maps for that region.

Please note that political boundaries changed radically throughout the Middle Ages and that this map shows merely an approximation of general areas over the course of more than a thousand years. Precision is not a viable option in this case.

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.
   For more about this atlas, return to the
Medieval Atlas main page.
