assignment is intended to provide a sense of the geographical contours
over which the history of Modern Britain unfolded. It will give
an appreciation of the topography, distances, cities, regions, and
political boundaries of England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the
various smaller islands that comprise Modern Britain. Students are
encouraged to use John Cannon (ed), Oxford Companion to British
History; S.J. Connolly (ed), Oxford Companion to Irish History;
Norman Davies, The Isles: A History as well as other atlases
and reference works.
You are not obligated to complete this assignment on your own. You
may collaborate with each other in preparing your maps (but beware
of shared errors). All items must be clearly labeled in block letters
on the maps (not number-keyed to a list in the margin) so that future
reference is easy for you and grading is easy for the instructor. Grades will
be based primarily on accuracy and neatness, but artistic flourish
and creativity will also be considered.
The blank maps supplied are the ones that must be used. Do not submit
computer-generated designs. Please staple the two maps together
and be sure to put your name on both pages.
Maps are due at the beginning of class on Monday, September 15.
