When a map was first opened by the conservation team at The National Archives, out fell endless fragments of paper and began an investigation back to 1725.

Sonja Schwoll (The National Archives) and Susan Littlewood take you behind the scenes of how conservation scientists rescued a map that lay at the heart of a seventy-year dispute and reveal more about the figure central to the court case, a Mr Samuel Travers.

This talk is part of the Summer Lecture Series exploring the theme 'Mapping and movement: people, place and power', which is generously sponsored by the Friends of The National Archives and supported by the Royal Historical Society.
