This exhibition traces the key events in the mapping of the County from 1573 to 2003, right up to the Ordnance Survey digital maps of today. On display are printed maps illustrating the evolving styles of cartography, prompted and inspired by technical advances and changes in the use to which maps are put. Apart from maps of the whole County, the exhibition looks at the mapping of Cambridge and the Fens.

The maps are beautifully crafted works of art in their own right, but they also tell us an enormous amount about past landscapes and the society for which they were made.

The Exhibition is open from 30 April to 18 October 2003, Mon-Fri 09.00-18.00, Sat 0900-16.30. (closed 25 August and 16-23 September inclusive.) Admission is free.
