Map Logic

This map shows the relative population size and damage of villages after the Norman Conquest in 1066AD. The data is derived from the Open Domesday Book(links provided at the bottom of the page). The black lines show known Roman Roads, the Red ones ancient trackways(Ivan D Margary), with the purple ones showing implied Roman roads provided by place names. The green outline shows the boundaries of Andredsweald derived from the Open Domesday Book data.


 
 

This map shows the outline of Andredsweald in 1066AD created by plotting the domesday villages and making the assumption that the area that has very few villages is forested.

The only villages within the area seem to be very small settlement which were likely to be foresters, miners, charcoal and small settlements.
