Item description for Northern Eurasia in Medieval Cartography: Inventory, Texts, Translation, and Commentary (Terrarum Orbis) by L.S. Chekin...

Scythia and the islands in the Ocean-Sea, the farthest northern and northeastern regions of the world known to ancient and medieval geographers, roughly correspond to modern-day Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. Those areas figured prominently in cartography of the Middle Ages. The mythical island of Scandza, the land of the Amazons, the apocalyptic tribes of Gog and Magog, and other traditional symbols of chaos and barbarity, existed side by side and often merged with new knowledge about people, cities, and states. Included in the book are comprehensive glossaries, which comprise the names of persons, places, ethnicities, and animals, and provide commentaries on the cartographic legends. The book features about one hundred reproductions of individual maps and their details. Leonid S Chekin is a Leading Research Associate at the Institute for the History of Science and Technology of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
