MAP EXERCISE


This assignment is intended to provide a sense of the physical contours of Ireland and the terrain over which Irish history has unfolded. It will give an appreciation of the topography, distances, cities, counties, and political boundaries of Ireland from the 1801 Act of Union to the present day. You are encouraged to use S.J. Connolly (ed.), Oxford Companion to Irish History as well as other reference works and historical atlases.

You are not obligated to complete this assignment on your own. You may collaborate with each other in preparing your maps (but beware of shared errors). All items must be clearly labeled on the maps (not number-keyed to a list in the margin) so that future reference is easy for you and grading is easy for the instructors. Grades will be based primarily on accuracy and neatness, but artistic flourish and creativity will also be considered.

The blank maps supplied are the ones that must be used. Do not submit computer-generated designs. Please staple the two maps together and be sure to put your name on both pages.

Maps are due at the beginning of class on Monday, 16 September.
