This innovative study employs digitisation techniques and GIS technology to coax a wealth of significant new information from an important eighteenth-century map; William Faden's survey of Norfolk, published in 1797. It sets the map, and its maker, firmly in their historical context. It also shows how - when combined with other datasets - interrogation of the various patterns and distributions which it shows can cast a shaft of new light on the development of the Norfolk landscape many centuries before the map was surveyed, as well as telling us a great deal about the contemporary, late-eighteenth century landscape, and how this was understood, exploited and experienced. The book includes a digital version of the map, on DVD. --Book Jacket.… (more)
