click for feature map
There two quite clear tents drawn on John Blaeu's map, which signify what?
tent (Southampton parish)
tent (Winchester parish)
Some british tribal areas are labelled on the map, ie:-
THE REGNI
in the south west of the county (above Southampton), and
THE SEGONTIANS
in the north (by Silchester).
hillforts Very few hills are named on the map. Danebury and Butser hill are picked out; perhaps because they have hillforts, perhaps just because they are named on a map being copied.
Beacon Hill Camp (Burghclere parish; SU458572)
Butter hill (Eastmeane Hundred) = Butser Hill (Langrish parish; SU7120)
Dunbury hill (Andover Hundred) = Danebury Hill (Nether Wallop parish; SU3236)
