Gallien and I came to the conclusion that history lovers would enjoy a historic correct siege map. like the vikings siege of Paris in the 9th century:

Unfortunately there is only few and rather poor map material for preparation..

Do you have any nice source for a map like this? or maybe for another siege? the map shouldnt be too big. for example the Paris map from the 17th century have already too many districts.

Perhaps an improved version of the Constantinople siege map?

yeah good idea, but there is already this existing map. and there have been so many sieges in the history. I guess I would rather like to make something new.

As Ranek already said, by the 17th century Paris had already become too large to map (I mean in Ranek's street by street style). And 19th century Paris, where all the revolutions took place, is even bigger.

But there was another center of revolutions in France in the 19th century - Lyons. And it was significantly smaller than Paris, so probably it is a better option for making a revolution-on-barricades type of a map.

Here is a map of the city - of 1833, right between the revolts of 1831 and 1834.
