Event description

Description

Scotland's Geographer Royal presents a richly illustrated talk examining and illuminating the mapping of Scotland's islands, from their first infrequent cartographic appearances in the late sixteenth century to the commonplace mapping (and computer-led cartographic obliteration) of the country's islands in the twenty-first century. His talk will suggest that mapping Scotland's islands has not been a straightforward task. For what, after all, is an island? And what a map?
