    Professor Jerry Brotton shows how maps can be snapshots of defining historical moments and tools of political power and persuasion. Visiting the world's first known map, etched into the rocks of an alpine hillside 3,000 years ago, Brotton explores how each culture develops its own way of mapping. He looks at how the French Cassini dynasty pioneered the quest to map the world with greater scientific accuracy, and the devastation caused when the British carved Iraq out of the Middle East.
