Map of London in the reign of the Saxon King Ethelred II, with the history of Roman and Saxon London written in a panel below the plan. The map shows the Roman wall still still standing, but the street plan suggests that, compared to the Roman period, the built-up area occupied a much smaller part of the walled city and that the population was in rapid decline.
