The City Of London, In The Time Of The Saxons ...
J. & F.Wallis - London - - 53.5 x 40 - Original colour - An historically speculative map showing London as it was imagined in Saxon times - c.1000. A panel of text beneath the map conveys that London was an important city even before the arrival of the Romans - brief notes are given for the period A.D.61 to A.D.1086. The map shows Watling Street traversing the marshes on the south bank of the Thames before crossing the river and entering the city walls on the north bank at "Belins Gate". Two Roman burial sites are also depicted just outside the city walls. The "Mercat" forms the central hub of the city and streets emanate outwards from there. A little staining but image unaffected.
