Selected by readers, these maps represent areas of special European interest in Africa during the 19th and 20th century. Many of these regions came under direct British control during the Victorian era for the strategic or economic advantages they offered, and became independent in the 20th century. The maps are almost entirely topographical, prepared by the (British) War Office, colonial surveys, and other official mapping authorities.
