This fragment was taken from a map of Wiltshire published in John Speed’s Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain in 1610. It shows the view of Stonehenge and the related text that appeared on the right edge of Speed’s map, with compass, scale bar and part of the publication details below. As Sarah Bendall notes, the addition of information about antiquarian remains was ‘one of the Theatre’s most significant contributions’. Hondius’s decorative borders including vignettes like this view were also a novelty. In the accompanying text, Speed attributed post-Roman origins to Stonehenge, which he believed would have been built as the tomb of Aurelius Ambrosius Aurelianus, King of the Romano-British.
