Hills John Speed uses little hillocks generally shaded on the right, to indicate the relief of Hampshire on his map. The symbols are grouped to some degree, but overall do not clearly demonstrate the bones of the county. The ridge of hils west of Winchester is clear; Portsdown is shown as a line of hillocks; and so on.
