THE EVOLUTION OF SEA CHARTS Today we rely on GPS devices to navigate, but it wasn’t so long ago that nautical charts told of coastal topography, off-lying islets and even mythical islands – and of course, guided us safely through the high seas. We navigate the history of nautical cartography, from tactile maps to medieval charts. MAPPING ANTARCTIC WOMEN Women have played a vital role in shaping our understanding of the Antarctic, but their role has not been celebrated on continental maps. Humanitarian Carol Devine set out to change that; to create a map with all the places named after females on it, and in turn discover the history of the frozen continent.
