The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Book
The maps in this book have been selected for a significant reason – whether that is a noteworthy moment in national history, a rare geographical feature or a site of special cultural interest – and you will find descriptions, along with the map source, accompanying each one to explain. Then there are the questions. The puzzles are designed to make you look a little closer and dig a little deeper into the detail of each map, unearthing what you might have missed at first glance and testing how far your skills will take you.
There are a total of 40 maps with hundreds of questions in a mix of word puzzles, search-and-find clues, general knowledge questions, connection-making conundrums and various mathematical, map skill and navigational challenges throughout. These are split into four levels of difficulty, from easy to challenging – if you get stuck the answers are included in the back of the book.
This is an idea gift for anyone who loves maps, or just enjoys a challenge.
