Maps by Geographic
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 Americas (pink)
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.
