Map and history aficionados may be interested in exploring Historic Liverpool, created by Martin Greaney, a landscape archaeologist, and Liverpool native. Historic Liverpool features a series of interactive maps depicting the historic landscapes of Liverpool and its surrounding area. Visitors can zoom into and click the maps for further details about a specific location. For example, on the History Map, viewers will find a collection of historic features marked by location pins (grouped in categories such as Archaeological Sites and Hidden History) that, when clicked, display a brief description and a link to a blog post with more details and images. The sidebar on the left provides navigation between Historic Liverpool's different main maps, and the site also has a search bar for those who prefer to search by text. Greaney continues to add new material regularly, and the wealth of information available is impressive--as one visitor commented, Historic Liverpool is "as good a reason as I've come across for wasting time constructively!"
