MoEMLThis is an excellent website, created and maintained by people of the University of Victoria, Canada.

The Map of Early Modern London, is quite what it say on the tin: a huge, digital version of the 1560 Agas Map that you can zoom, search, navigate… It also has its own internal Encyclopedia, a great system of cross-references, a library of relevant documents, many extracts from Stow’s Survey of London…

Here you can find the map itself – large, zoomable, gorgeous – complete with a new (and still experimental) feature that allows you to highlight wards, streets, neighbourhoods, and several categories of buildings…

A wonderful resource, if you are interested in Elizabethan London – and a great toy even if you are not.
