Interactive maps reveal London’s history in unprecedented detail

Unattributed, Eccos Revista Científica, Jan 10, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

What I like about this is that it isn't a course, it's just a resource - but what a resource! It's the sort of think you can look at on the surface or really dive in and get lost exploring. Locating London's Past is based on John Rocque's 1746 map of London as well as an 19th century map and, of course, today's Google Maps equivalent. The interface is a bit tricky (and slow) so it may take a bit to begin plotting events on the map - but once you start locating (say) plague deaths you'll be hooked.
