Bristol is close to the Marches and was an important route into Wales across the Severn estuary throughout the Middle Ages. A map of Bristol as it would have looked in 1480 has been published by the Historic Towns Trust, as part of a larger project, ‘Making Bristol Medieval‘, funded by the University of Bristol. The map is available from bookshops and online booksellers. ISBN 978-0-9934698-7-9. £9.99.
