1 : 31680 The Wye Valley runs from the top to the bottom of the sheet.Forming a natural border, the valley became a regular battleground throughout the Roman, Saxon Norman eras,and during the Marcher Wars in the reign of James I. To the left of the sheet are the peaks of Mynydd Eppynt. To the right, the border of England and Wales is marked by the ancient earth bank, Offa's Dyke. The castle town of Builth is depicted at the top of the sheet. Built at the end of the 12th century, the castle witnessed repeated conflicts, and frequently changed hands between the Welsh and English. After Edward I's campaign against the Welsh in 1277, the castle was refortified and transformed into a formidable fortress. Budgen, Thomas

HEREFORDIAE COMITATUS f.95

This is a map of Herefordshire by Christopher Saxton dating from 1577. It forms part of an atlas that belonged to William Cecil Lord Burghley, Elizabeth I’s Secretary of State. Burghley used this atlas to illustrate domestic matters. This map is actually a proof copy of one which forms part of Christopher Saxton’s Atlas of England and Wales. This atlas was first published as a whole in 1579. It consists of 35 coloured maps depicting the counties of England and Wales. The atlas is of great significance to British cartography as it set a standard of cartographic representation in Britain and the maps remained the basis for English county mapping, with few exceptions, until after 1750. During the reign of Elizabeth I, map use became more common, with many government matters referring to increasingly accurate maps with consistent scales and symbols, made possible by advances in surveying techniques. Illustrating the increasing use of maps in government matters, Lord Burghley, who had been determined to have England and Wales mapped in detail from the 1550s, selected the cartographer Christopher Saxton to produce a detailed and consistent survey of the country. The financier of the project was Thomas Seckford, Master of Requests at the Court of Elizabeth I, whose arms appear, along with the royal crest, on each map. Burghley has annotated this map, underlining the information printed at Kinnaston chap Wch Was dreven downe by the removing of the ground. The map was engraved by Remigius Hogenbergius, one of a team of seven English and Flemish engravers employed to produce the copper plates for the atlas. Saxton, Christopher Hogenbergius, Remigius

HEREFORDIAE COMITATUS Sheet 23

This map of Herefordshire is from the 1583 edition of the Saxton atlas of England and Wales. This atlas was first published as a whole in 1579. It consists of 35 coloured maps depicting the counties of England and Wales. The atlas is of great significance to British cartography as it set a standard of cartographic representation in Britain and the maps remained the basis for English county mapping, with few exceptions, until after 1750. During the reign of Elizabeth I map use became more common, with many government matters referring to increasingly accurate maps with consistent scales and symbols, made possible by advances in surveying techniques. Illustrating the increasing used of maps in government matters, Lord Burghley, Elizabeth I’s Secretary of State, who had been determined to have England and Wales mapped in detail from the 1550s, selected the cartographer Christopher Saxton to produce a detailed and consistent survey of the country. The financier of the project was Thomas Seckford Master of Requests at the Court of Elizabeth I, whose arms appear, along with the royal crest, on each map. Here Saxton’s name appears in the decorative scale bar, as does the name of the engraver of this map, Remigius Hogenberg , one of seven English and Flemish engravers employed to produced the copper plates for the atlas. The cartouche is mounted by the Elizabethan coat of arms and the Seckford arms of appear in the bottom right corner. The adjacent counties are named but lack any internal detail, recording only the path of rivers that cross county boundaries. Saxton, Christopher Ryther, Augustine
