(However, we may be sure that in early times, just like today, maps were created for a variety of purposes and took a variety of forms.) ⑥ It may also be clear that, contrary to popular belief, of all the purposes to which maps have been put through the ages, the least important single purpose has been to find the way. ⑦ Sea charts did not come into existence until the European Middle Ages, and topographical maps were not normally carried about by land
travelers until the 18th century.
What do you think this "put" means? make?
"All the purposes to which maps have been put" is synonymous with "All the purposes for which maps have been used."
