Maps offer us a chance to see not just how our world looks today, but how it once looked. But what about the places that are no longer mapped?

Discover the cities that once ruled their kingdoms, uncover the dramatic effect of changing seas and rivers on the land and people by their sides and imagine what the world once looked like as you discover the places that have vanished from modern atlases.

Maps offer us a chance to see not just how our world looks today, but how it once looked. But what about the places that are no longer mapped?

Cities forgotten under the dust of newly settled land? Rivers and seas whose changing shape has shifted the landscape around them? Or, even, places that have seemingly vanished, without a trace?

Travis Elborough takes you on a voyage to all corners of the world in search of the lost, disappearing and vanished. Specially commissioned cartography showing each place as It once was and how it is today and archive photography bring these incredible stories to life.
