England in the ninth century


A large-scale map of southern England (up to the Humber), showing the then settlements and political divisions, including the line of the Alfred-Guthrum treaty. (Earlier kingdoms are yielding importance to the line between "English" Mercia and Wessex and the eastern half of the country under Viking control). Map drawn by Reginald Piggott for Simon Keynes.
