The Museum of London has partnered with professional crafters (as within the Minecraft pc sport) Blockworks and Dragnoz to create Great Fire 1666, a series of 3 interactive maps so that it will be made available for free. You can read all about it in The Great Fire of London has been reimagined in Minecraft.

To mark the 350th anniversary of Minecraft indirin the tragedy, the Museum of London is keeping an interactive exhibition, Fire! Fire!. It aims to show the destruction at the time, discover the evidence of its causes, permit visitors try combating the fireplace themselves, and display how the town rose from the (very literal) ashes.

You can now down load the pre-hearth map. In coming months, greater maps — The Fire (September 2016) & Post-Fire (February 2017) – may be released.
