Oxford in Maps

Tuesday 6th February at 8pm
Magdalen College Auditorium

Oxford as a city has been well mapped, from the straight-forward street plans to maps of war, disease and the evils of drink. Our guide to such maps and others that show the city under siege, beset with cholera and divided by class, will be Stuart Ackland who has worked in the Map Room at the Bodleian Library since 1990. Stuart looks after the storage of the collection and helps run a blog dedicated to the maps held in the Bodleian.
