Old maps

Tonight I wrote an essay for my Historical Geography course. It involved looking at some old maps and seeing why they were drawn/written and what they were saying. Boring! Yes, I thought so too, but check this bad boy out. It's a map of the Holy Land drawn in 1542, but it's actually set in the Old Testament. (If you're confused, bear in mind that west is at the top, and north is to the right.) I just think that's pretty cool - at least my process of working out what it was was cool. In my mind...

OK, I'm going to bed before I embarass myself over the internet any more.
