AntiqueMaps Photo I'm sitting here in my home office, recovering from Christmas and the New Year - meaning there's a well-earned malt on my desk!
And I realised that the walls around me are covered with a subject that I've yet to write a quiz on - antique maps.
But there's no way I'm going to tax my - or your - brains too much at this time of year.
So I'm idly looking at locations' names as they were on these maps.
Health warning ... some of these go way back! Before 1500 even (BC!).
Anyway, here's a list of antique names of modern places. See if you can match 'em up.
Should be fairly easy for Histogeog nutters, or lethal if you've had even more malts than I this morning!
