Event description

Description

In this fascinating talk, John Davies explains how the Soviet Union secretly mapped Sheffield in the 1970s. The map is on display as part of the Mapping Sheffield exhibition and was one of about 100 large-scale plans of British towns and cities produced by the USSR during the Cold War.

John Davies is the author of The Red Atlas; How the Soviet Union Secretly Mapped the World published by University of Chicago Press.

This event is part of our Mapping Sheffield season and accompanies the exhibition at Sheffield Central Library; running from the 1st of October until Christmas 2019.
