The National Archives of the UK is currently home to the 125 pieces of Modern China Maps, which were illegally acquired from British military invasion in Guangzhou during the Second Opium War. Such maps contain a lot of facts and data in terms of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, Guangdong Heaven-Earth Society Revolt and the border defense of Qing army. In the same time, the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin collected about 160 pieces of China Maps, which ranges from the Yihetuan Movement to the course diversion of the Yellow River and the Grand Canal. These China Maps collected in Europe are of great historical values and further research on them is long overdue.
