Oldest Known Accurate Road Map Of Britain -- 1360 -- It's the Gough Map, held in the Bodleian and now available in digitized form.

Mary Seacole was a Jamaican nurse who risked her own life to treat the wounded in the Crimean War. As Mary was black, Florence Nightingale turned her away several times, so she set up her own 'British Hotel'  and worked round the clock to nurse the soldiers.
