Draughtsman: [Budgen, Charles]
Medium: Pen and ink on paper
There were no definitive guidelines in the early 1800s for recording relief, so each draughtsman differs in his representation. Contour lines were not introduced until 1839-40. Here, Budgen uses dense clusters of short, dark strokes ('hachures') to indicate relief. Although the recording of archaeological sites did not become obligatory until 1816, he also illustrates a Roman road, running diagonally upwards from the lower left of the map, noting its local name: 'Devil's Bank'.
