MAP EXERCISE


This assignment is intended to provide a sense of the geographical contours over which the history of Modern Britain has 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 Wednesday, 16 September.
