As part of our Talking Maps exhibition, join a member of the Bodleian Library's Map Room as they talk about the background of the Sheldon Tapestry Map of Oxfordshire and answer questions. The map is on display in Blackwell Hall in the Weston Library.
Talks take place everyweekdaybetween 11.30am–12pm.
Every map tells a story. Talking Maps is a celebration of maps and what they tell us about the places they depict and the people that make and use them.
Drawing on the Bodleian's unparalleled collection of more than 1.5 million maps, this exhibition brings together an extraordinary selection of ancient, pre-modern and contemporary maps from a range of cultures and in a variety of formats as well as showcasing fascinating imaginary, fictional and war maps.
