Mappa Mundi

Beast Fables - Comic 30 - Thorn displays his elaborate map of the medieval world.

Medieval Moment: Mappa Mundis were medieval maps of the world according to their European authors. They were used as a way to understand the world, rather than as a means to navigate by. The Hereford Mappa Mundi, in particular, places Jerusalem in the middle and extrapolates from there, placing Britain, Europe and Africa around it and noting various religious sites.

Note the locations of Thorn’s winter stash of nuts.
