Period Maps
http://historymedren.about.com/library/atlas/blatperdex.htm
A period or antique map is a document created during the Middle Ages depicting the world (or part of it) as it was perceived at that time. Period maps offer intriguing glimpses into the medieval mindset. They can also be rather extraordinary works of art.
The sites below offer images of period maps created sometime in the seventeenth century or earlier.

Historical Maps : 4 2 Explore
http://www.42explore2.com/historicalmaps.htm
This web project provides "four to explore" for each topic.
On each page you'll find definitions, activities, 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic.
In some cases, we've listed more than four websites on a particular topic. For example, we might provide a few for younger readers and others for more advanced learners.
Each school, classroom, and teacher is unique. As such we didn't try to provide specific activities for particular grade levels. Instead we suggest that teachers explore each link, then design specific, developmentally appropriate activities such as discussion questions, small group activities, or webquests to fit the needs of their curriculum.
The links on this site are safe for children.
