MAP fans will be delighted with a talk taking place a The Centre For Heritage and Family History next week.
John Leighfield will be visiting the Reading-based venue to explain about the history of maps, with an emphasis on Berkshire itself.
He will start with a map of Britain created around 1250 AD by Matthew Paris, before moving through the ages to reach modern mapping and the internet.
There will also be a chance to look at some historic maps.
The event is organised by the Berkshire Family History Society and will take place in Reading Central Library in the town centre on Thursday, December 6, between 2pm and 4pm.
Tickets cost £5 or £4 for members, booking in advance is possible and visitors can also pay on the door.
