Map of Dartmoor (detail) c. AD 1500

A wonderful image of the Forest of Dartmoor shown as a circle with the appearance of a sun, its rays extending outwards. This is one of the earliest known representations of Dartmoor, the rays rivers leaving the high moor. The idea of Dartmoor as a circular island attracts - within its mass all might be found; beyond its shores, journeys to other lands. By connecting the island to the larger world, life can exist and be enriched.
