As I am reading Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin, the first Medieval winner of the CWA Ellis Peters Historical Award, and will follow that with the sequel The Death Maze.
I thought I had better do a bit of research to be able to comment on the authenticity of the books. Therefore as well as watching BBC 4 's excellent Medieval season I have been looking up some maps of Europe in the 12th century.

What a treasure chest of information is available on the internet!
This map looked rather nice and is taken from the library of the University of Texas.
