Gough Map of Great Britain

Gough Map of Great Britain (named after one of its former antiquarian owners, Richard Gough, 1735-1809) is internationally-renowned as one of the earliest maps to show Britain in a geographically-recognizable form. Yet to date, questions remain of how the map was made, who made it, when and why. This is an interactive, searchable edition of the Gough Map, together with contextual material, and information about the Linguistic Geographies project and the Language of Maps colloquium.
