The Agas Map of London, c.1561

This morning as I was preparing a biographical preface for Obadiah Sedgwick, I was reading about one of the churches he served in, and in doing some research on the internet, found this wonderful interactive map of the city of London, circa 1561.  Called the Agas Map, it is an exquisitely detailed drawing which has been overlaid with information that helps the user quickly pinpoint major landmarks (including churches) in the city.  Very helpful and worth bookmarking.  You can find it here or by clicking the picture above.

Ekvall_Knut_The_Reading_LessonDid you know that if you use Google’s Chrome web browser, you can install an extension that will allow you to collect and read e-Pub files (like those found on our website) anywhere you go? The extension, called Readium, can be found here. It is super-simple to install, and there is no setup or account creation. If you are signed in to Chrome, it translates across any devices you have that use Chrome (laptop, desktop, tablet, phone, work computer) automagically. Happy reading!
