Title

  • The Boundaries of Afghanistan During the Great Game

Summary

  • This virtual orientation will provide an introduction to the maps housed at the Library of Congress, with a special focus on the maps that delineate the boundaries of Afghanistan and its neighboring territories during the Great Game. The term "Great Game" was used to describe the rivalry between Great Britain and Russia as their spheres of influence in Mughal India, Turkestan and Persia (Iran) moved them closer to one another in South-Central Asia. The Great Game between England and Russia began in 1830 and lasted throughout the 19th century.
