EVESHAM WORLD MAP, c1400 Created for the prior of Evesham Abbey, this map marks the birth of modern English patriotism. The top is a world map in the traditional medieval sense, with the Garden of Eden, the Tower of Babel below and a large multi-towered Jerusalem. But at the bottom an enormous England stretches from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. The very large tower above the French coast is Calais, captured in 1347. We are in the age of Henry V and Agincourt.
