Seminar: Mapping Townscapes: comparative perspectives through the Irish and British Historic Towns Atlases
When: 19 May 2017

Where: Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2
Registration: Free to attend, but booking required to secure your place<http://ihta.us9.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=3f15c9d3f21607c68a6ce980b&id=818e8ddfad&e=b09d0de05e>

Early maps and town plans are vital sources in understanding townscapes and are used to create historical maps that form such an important element of all historic town atlases. In collaboration with the British Historic Towns Atlas/Historic Towns Trust (HTT)<http://ihta.us9.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=3f15c9d3f21607c68a6ce980b&id=edd0bd415e&e=b09d0de05e>, the 2017 annual seminar of the Irish Historic Towns Atlas (IHTA)<http://ihta.us9.list-manage.com/track/click?u=3f15c9d3f21607c68a6ce980b&id=33cdf811f1&e=b09d0de05e> focuses especially on historic and historical maps. Looking at urban mapping in both Britain and Ireland across five centuries, the Mapping Townscapes seminar will open up new comparative perspectives on the Irish and British historic town atlases, as well as offer new insights into the past, present and future cartographic connections between our two neighbouring islands.
In association with the Irish Walled Towns Network<http://ihta.us9.list-manage.com/track/click?u=3f15c9d3f21607c68a6ce980b&id=038c2cbee3&e=b09d0de05e>
