Deep Mapping - Deep Maps: West Cork Coastal Cultures
The aim of the Deep Maps: West Cork Coastal Cultures project is to develop new ways of thinking about place. We apply these to our endangered marine environment, with the aim of encouraging the ongoing stewardship of Cork’s coast, and Ireland’s maritime heritage.

The project investigates the biological, cultural, and historical contexts of the south west coast of Ireland from 1700 to 1920, and connects them to the present day marine environment. Our study area stretches along the arc of Roaring Water Bay from Timoleague to Bantry Bay.

How Writers Map Their Imaginary Worlds - Atlas Obscura
One of life’s great treats, for a lover of books (especially fantasy books), is to open a cover to find a map secreted inside and filled with the details of a land about to be discovered. A writer’s map hints at a fully imagined world, and at the beginning of a book, it’s a promise. In the middle of a book, it’s a touchstone and a guide. And at the end, it’s a reminder of all the places the story has taken you.

A new book, The Writer’s Map, contains dozens of the magical maps writers have drawn or that have been made by others to illustrate the places they’ve created. “All maps are products of human imagination,” writes Huw Lewis-Jones, the book’s editor. “For some writers making a map is absolutely central to the craft of shaping and telling their tale.”
