This interesting map of Britain, Scotland, and Ireland was created in London by John Senex in 1731. It shows a rudimentary outline of the islands according to the geography of the Roman Empire, after Caesar’s legions subjugated the numerous local tribes in the south.

Several such groups are labeled in Latin across the image. Walls, major settlements (including Londinium) and prominent geographic features are also named.
