A catalogue and cartographical analysis. The study of the urban cartography of Great Britain forms part of a long-term research programme, based at Exeter University Geography Department, to record and analyse the pre-Ordnance Survey, large-scale (i.e. highly detailed) maps of the nation. The first two parts of the programme concerned maps of rural parishes and townships made for tithe commutation and enclosure purposes [note 1]. Professor Roger Kain FBA, programme director, expands upon the current project which was adopted by the British Academy in 1998 [note 2].
A two-day interdisciplinary meeting was held at the British Academy in April on ‘The Evolution of Cultural Entities’. Sponsored jointly by the Academy and the Epistemology Group, it was planned by Professor Margaret A. Boden FBA and Professor John Ziman FRS. Professor M.A. Boden FBA reviews the event.
Delivered by Sir Tony Wrigley PBA to the 97th Annual General Meeting of the Academy, on 1 July 1999.
