From Mappa Mundi to modern election maps, the ways in which Great Britain has been mapped has evolved as rapidly as the country itself. Philip Parker, author of The History of Britain in Maps and The A-Z History of London, offers a fascinating account of how these changes have been catalogued over hundreds of years and reveals through 90 maps, how the country and its capital city have changed through time.
