I am doing this as part of a project in my MA in Archaeological illustration. The map is meant to present the local archaeological heritage to inhabitants of a small, rural Norwegian municipality. The point is to give an idea of how many different sites there actually are, as this is generally something most people are not aware of. Since it is targeted at "everyone" with an interest in the subject, it needs to be as clear as possible with regard to map reading skills and those with poor eye sight. Based on that, I have tried to make it intuitive but also as simple as possible. I think it's OK right now, but maybe also a bit...boring?
In addition I am making three hiking maps, as an attempt to get people out and about to experience these sites. I'll upload one of those as well.
The big map will be printed on A3 sized paper, the hiking map on A5. They will also be accompanied by an overview of the different archaeological periods and photos of artefacts found in the area etc.
The maps have been made in Adobe Illustrator CS2. I didn't have access to any map programs, so they have been traced from screenshots from different (valid) online maps.
