General Map History Homepage

`Map history`, more formally the `history of cartography`, is now an established academic discipline. Its concern is with non-current maps produced in, or of, any part of the world. Its practitioners come largely from history, geography or librarianship but the diverse purposes of early maps and the varied interpretations to which they lend themselves means that the history of cartography is a multi-disciplinary subject.

Map of Attica in Socrates and Plato's time

Nice map of Attica, Boeotia, and Euboea with their cities. Depending on the context, Athens may refer to the city of Athens proper, exclusive of its suburbs such as Piraeus, its main harbor, or the larger urbain area including such suburbs as Piraeus, or the whole of Attica, the territory of the "city-state", in which most of its citizens would live and own land, or even the whole of the Athenian empire that spread all through the Mediterranean, grew and shrunk over the years (the same could be said with little variation of all the "city-states" of ancient Greece, such as Sparta, Thebes, Corinth, etc.). Thus, what were called citizens of Athens, were in fact people living all through Attica, not necessarily in the city of Athens itself, though they all had to go there from time to time to accomplish their civic duties.

Unified now, the Celts, formed a Kingdom, the "Kingdom of Tyllis" as it was named, which became so powerful that controlled even the city and the port of Byzantium. That Kingdom stayed in Celtic rule for almost 60 years, when Thracians deposed Canarus, the last Celt King in Thrace thus pushing them to Minor Asia.

Map of Palestine and her Neighbors (2000 B.C.)

Map of Israel and her neighbors at the time of the Amorite invasion (2000 B.C.). Right around the turn of the second millennium B.C. the Amorites came and swallowed up every kingdom and city in the Middle East that they attacked. They built new cities on the mounds of the destroyed kingdoms which later became the Canaanite cities of the Bible. They spoke a west-Semitic dialect and were called the Amurru (people of the west) by the Akkadian peoples of Mesopotamia. The story of Sinuhe describes the land of Canaan almost identical to the Promised Land of the Bible.

Map of the Egyptian Empire (1450 B.C.)

Map of the Egyptian Empire with the Conquest of Canaan by Thutmose III (1450 B.C.). The18th dynasty was established in Egypt during the middle of the 16th century B.C. by Ahmose (Aahmes). At this time Egypt's New Kingdom took complete control over the land of Canaan, the kingdom lasted over 400 years. It was around this time that the term "Land of Canaan" makes its first appearance in ancient historical records. The term had originated on the Phoenician coastline and certain inscriptions mention them as a class of wealthy merchants. Later the king of Babylon used it to designate the entire Egyptian province of Canaan when he wrote to Pharaoh: "Canaan is thy land and its kings are thy servants" (El-Amarna 8, 25)

Map of the Ancient Fertile Crescent

Sometime around 2500 B.C. a great migration developed upon what is known as the "Fertile Crescent," which was like a great arc of cultivable land that extended from the Persian gulf, up and around Mesopotamia and back down to Israel and Egypt. By 1000 B.C. the known world reached as far west as Europe. The major east-west trade routes were established along the Fertile Crescent. Abraham, the first Hebrew actually followed this route from ancient Ur in Mesopotamia, up and around the Fertile Crescent to Haran and down to the land of Canaan. When the armies of the east collided with the armies of the west it would happen somewhere along the Fertile Crescent. (Color map from Bible History Online).

Map of the Babylonian Empire (550 B.C.)

The Babylonians were great conquerors, as the Assyrians were. They were also great traders as revealed through archaeology, and thousands of cuneiform tablets have been found telling of their complex trade networks. They traded with Lebanon, Egypt and Greece. In order to protect their trade routes, they marched their armies west with the mighty king Nebuchadnezzar leading them. He captured major cities like the Phoenician city of Tyre and it was he who conquered Jerusalem. He also drove out the Egyptians from Syria and Phoenicia which enabled him to secure a rich trade gateway to the Mediterranean Sea. (Bible History Online)

Map of the New Assyrian Empire - 650 B.C.

This map reveals how vast the Assyrian Empires territory had extended, which covered lands from the Persian Gulf to Egypt to present day Turkey. The Assyrians were remarkable warriors and had been for some time. Their tactically organized and well-equipped army was able to storm enemy cities like a mighty machine, on foot, on their swift horses and their war chariots. Once the Assyrian troops had battered down a city gate, they showed no mercy. They ruthlessly murdered, tortured, and enslaved their enemies. Their practice of relocating rebellious peoples made them very despised. Any conquered people would forever hate the cruel Assyrians. (Bible History Online)
