Abstract: Historical maps are common tools in Archaeology, and can be of great use in the location and identification of sites. However, maps are not simply scientific renderings of natural and cultural landscapes. Historically maps were commonly displayed for status and prestige, as well as to convey political narratives to the viewer. As such, maps must be analyzed not only in terms of their accuracy, but also in terms of how they were viewed by their original audience. Working from Angele Smith's definition of maps as artifacts, I present a series of London maps dating from the thirteenth, sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, and through Braudel' s Annalist temoporal framework examine the ways in which these maps were used to 'muffle' dissenting voices in the historic record. In doing it can be seen that the maps of the medieval and early modern period were used as tools to convey political narratives to the viewer and as a way to create and control a state-sanctioned image of the City of London.
