This site is part of the Online Reference Book for Medieval Studies. It presents 63 maps, primarily of medieval Europe and the Mediterranean, all of which grant permission for classroom use or the creation of webpages. Maps are divided by region and are presented in chronological order. Included are nine maps of Europe that illustrate the development of medieval Europe from 395-1519 CE. There are also 14 maps that trace the development and expansion of Islam. A small section offers seven maps of the crusades. A larger section addresses the growth of European states, including Germany, Italy, France, England, and Spain/Portugal. The JPEG images include title and publication information only. Most of these images come either from Muir’s Historical Atlas: Medieval and Modern, (London: 1911) or H.G. Wells, A Short History of the World, (London:1922).
