The maps were produced by the surveyor William Senior between 1629 and 1640 and cover Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Northumberland, Gloucestershire and Somerset.

The seminar will take place at 10am on Saturday, 13th Decembe,r and will describe the origins and structure of the Atlas and its relationship to Senior's written surveys.

Further information on the seminars is available on the University of Nottingham website.
