Fodor's Review

This extraordinary double attraction includes the more than 20-square-foot parchment Mappa Mundi. Hereford's own picture of the medieval world shows the Earth as flat, with Jerusalem at its center. It's thought that the map was originally the central section of an altarpiece dating from 1290.
