Roman Britain

This map from the “Notita Dignitatum” from a copy done in 1436 from now a long lost original shows Roman Britain in the late 4th century. It shows the Shore defences against the Saxons and it is just possible that it shows the defences in Northern England/Scotland as the lowlands at this period came under Roman rule.
