Discover, for example, this detail of the city of Braine-le-Comte in 1587 (Archives of the State in Mons, Maps and Plans, II, 1043), taken from a map drawn up in the framework of a trial between the chapter of Sainte-Waudru de Mons and the chapter of Salle-le-Comte in Valenciennes, concerning tithes for the Council of Hainaut. The archives of the Council are lost, but the maps extracted from the files have been preserved.
Via Cartesius, you can consult famous maps or not. Recently, the State Archives have downloaded, in addition to the collection of Maps and Plans of AE Mons, the following collections:
- a large part of the maps and plans of the series II of the General Archives of the Kingdom
- cards selling national goods
- the cards of the general notary of Brabant
- the atlas of the Ter Duinen abbey (whose originals are kept at the Grand Séminaire de Bruges).
