4. On the corner of his map, Hollar put some information. It is a list of places that are numbered on the map. This is called a key.
- There are a lot of halls. These were meeting places for different kinds of craftsmen. For example, number 130 is the Carpenter’s Hall. Can you find any more? In pairs, talk about what people had to do in these jobs. (Your teacher will help you with the unusual ones.)
- Try and find some new jobs listed here in the key that were not listed in source 1 (for example: 124. weavers).
- How many houses in the city were destroyed by the fire?
- How many churches were burnt?
