The first jigsaws were maps...

 

… so we are continuing the tradition by turning our own maps into digital jigsaw puzzles. Switch up your quarantine routine and impress everyone with your new carto-knowledge at the next Zoom pub quiz.

 

When they first appeared in Georgian England, “dissected maps” offered a perfect trifecta for students and teachers alike: a lesson in geography, a lighthearted game, and a work of art. We can thank two women for inventing these clever map puzzles - Madame Leprince de Beaumont and Lady Charlotte Finch, royal governess to George III’s children. In fact, Lady Finch kept a whole cabinet filled with jigsaw maps for her royal pupils, now at the Victoria & Albert’s Museum of Childhood. We think our puzzles are equally fit for purpose, and offer you the chance to explore the world, one place (or piece) at a time from the comfort of your own living room.

 

 

Unlike our traditional jigsaw puzzles, the puzzles below can be adapted to your desired level of difficulty, just click "Play as" in the upper right-hand corner of the puzzle to customise the experience.

 

Go ahead and give it a try – our puzzles could be the missing piece of your day, and you won’t have to worry about one of the pieces slipping down the side of your sofa.
