This Tudor London map overlay is marvelous
To make it work, open the link near the top of the article in a desktop browser (didn't work on my phone) and then click on "Layers" and turn on the Tudor one. It only covers a tiny proportion of the map, but changing the transparency back and forth while zoomed out will help you find the right bit. And when you do, it's fascinating!
