Elizabethan Map of 1580

Posted · Add Comment

This exhibition looked at a map of 1580 showing Berwick-upon-Tweed with its new fortifications and the town in some detail. The map was studied by a Civic Society member, Catherine Kent, who prepared a series of story boards looking at what we can learn from the map about the buildings, the people who lived there and other fascinating glimpses of life in the 16c.
