London Agas Map 1560 -1570

The Map of Early Modern London: "This site maps the streets, sites, and significant boundaries of late sixteenth-century and early seventeenth-century London. You will see many of the theatres and landmarks of Shakespeare's time, and learn about the history and culture of the city in which he lived and worked.

There are several ways to navigate early modern London. The Index lists sites, streets, and wards in London, as well as people mentioned in the website. Click on the location marker (e.g., A1) to go to the relevant section of the map, or on the name to go to the explanatory page. If you wish to study the Map, go to an enlarged section of the map, select 'Show All,' and move your mouse to activate the tags that identify buildings and streets; some of these tags are also links to explanatory pages."

This site began as a pedagogical tool in 1999. It is in the process of becoming a scholarly tool with fully refereed articles. Contributions made by students are not refereed but have been approved by Janelle Jenstad.
