Mapping the World

Available on Dplay
The three-part series "Mapping the World" shows that maps are not simply graphic representations of reality; they are revealing snapshots of historical moments, helping to revolutionize the way people view the world. In each episode, professor Jerry Brotton tells how maps developed and how technology advanced the map-making process, and along the way the series explores the worldly role of maps in relation to issues of power, romance, wars and exploration.
