Mappa Mundi - A Window Into The Medieval Mind

The Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral is one of the great treasures of the Medieval World recognised in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

It offers a unique window into the Medieval mind, as well as painting a picture of the geography of Christendom.  It paints a world inhabited by dragons, unicorns and giants, which depicts the spiritual path of humanity in this world and the next.

Watch Sarah Arrowsmith, Head of Schools and Family Learning at Hereford Cathedral, as she takes viewers on a guided tour of this unique treasure and looks into the Medieval mind.
