Drs. Keith Lilley and Elizabeth Solopova explain the significance of a 14th Century map donated to the Bodleian Library in the 1900's by Richard Gough whose name it bears.

Through the palaeographic study of Dr. Solopova and the historical expertise of Dr. Lilley, more has been revealed about just how this famous chart of late mediaeval Britain came to be created.

The Gough Map is internationally-renowned as one of the earliest maps to show Britain in a geographically-recognizable form. Yet to date, questions remain of how the map was made, who made it, when and why.
