Virtual Borderlands. Ukraine in historical maps

(online) Leiden, The Netherlands

Organisation: Universitaire Bibliotheken Leiden

A selection was taken from some six hundred maps and plans on Ukraine, which belong to the Bodel Nijenhuis Collection and the Steegh/Teunissen Collection of Leiden University Libraries. Thirty maps on the history of the second largest country in Europe will be presented in six paragraphs. Each starts with a number of maps, with corresponding captions, and finishes with a short commentary that hopefully sheds some light on the present war of Russia against Ukraine.
The authors of the exhibition are Martijn Storms and Harrie Teunissen.
