Maps That Made America with Susan Schulten and the British Library

Dan talks to Susan Schulten, a historian from the University of Denver, about maps as tools for visualising history. Find out how Columbus's voyage was based on an erroneous prediction (and why it was fortunate for him that it was), and the way in which we use maps has changed over the centuries.
