A Medieval Atlas

Maps by Geographic Region

The map below shows the general boundaries of the various continents. Click the text links below to go to an index of maps for that region. Although Australia is depicted on the map (in gray), there is no index for Australia during the Middle Ages.

The World


Although Europe and Asia are technically one land mass (Eurasia), Europe is the primary focus of our atlas and has a separate -- and much more complex -- index. On the map above, the division is arbitrary and by necessity inexact.

You'll find both historical and period maps of the Middle Ages in these indices. If you're looking for antique maps in particular, consult our period map index.

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.

Medieval Atlas main page.
