Ok, it's a futuristic map rather than an historic one but it's very cool.  British Isles in 2100 by The9988

Found beneath the floor of an English cathedral, a large calfskin canvas featuring what appeared to be a map of the world. Once recovered and repaired, the map was found to date to 1285. Cities and towns are depicted on the medieval Mappa Mundi, more than 500 ink drawings illustrate biblical events, exotic plants and animals, wild and strange creatures from legends, and dipictions from classical myths. The remarkable artifact remains the largest medieval map still known to exist.

Hereford Mappa Mundi - the largest intact Medieval wall map in the world and its ambition is breathtaking – to picture all of human knowledge in a single image. The work of a team of artists, the world it portrays is overflowing with life, featuring Classical and Biblical history, contemporary buildings and events, animals and plants from across the globe, and the infamous ‘monstrous races’ which were believed to inhabit the remotest corners of the Earth.

Very interesting. I've seen the Psalter world map before (mappa mundi) from 1265. It deals less with accurate geography than it does with politics, ethnography, and the Bible. At the center of the map is Jerusalem.

East is at the top. Red sea, Persian Gulf and Nile River (and other rivers) are in red. Black Sea is squashed. Caspian Sea opens to the ocean in the North. Italy is a strange shape. So interesting to see what was understood about the world. - - - Anglo-saxon Mappa Mundi c. 1050-1075
