Medieval England

The National Geographic Society created this map of medieval England including illustrations, notes, and insets about the major events of English history during the Middle Ages. The location of King John’s castle in Windsor and the meadow of Runnymede, where King John granted Magna Carta, are clearly marked along the Thames above London. One inset shows the boundaries of the territories that King John’s father, King Henry II, ruled on the European continent—territories that King John subsequently lost. The map appeared as a supplement to a travel feature in National Geographic magazine about the persistence of rural culture in postwar England.
