The golden age of exploration will be brought to life in a new interactive website featuring thousands of magnificent early modern (pre-1800) maps which is being developed by researchers at Trinity College Dublin.

The Fagel Project will see 10,000 maps including battle plans, urban streetscapes and architectural drawings made available as a free online resource. It is part of an ambitious new digital humanities project being undertaken by the departments of History, Geography and Computer Science at Trinity.
The beautiful maps, the majority of which are in colour, form part of Trinity's Fagel collection, a library assembled by the Fagel family in Amsterdam from 1630 to 1800. Regarded as one of the finest pre-1800 map collections in the world, the Fagel maps are unique in terms of quality and standard of preservation.

Speaker - Dr Micheál Ó Siochrú, Associate Professor in Modern History
