As you can see, a large number of the Roman Bloomeries are located fairly near the main Roman Roads or Trackways, this
implies that the iron produced was carried via these routes to the nearest Port.
There is an argument that the main route for iron out of the Weald was via the Limden/Eastern Rother in Sussex,
by looking at the main trackways and places named Street, these are marked as Purple lines on the map, with a centre
at modern day Etchingham..
One or two of the plotted road routes may have slight alignment issues as places and names have changed over the last
60 years since the books were published, making it very difficult to match locations exactly.
Also shown is the Forest of Anderida in green, the high tide changes in the coastline shown in pale blue, and
the 5 metre high tide mark on the rivers shown in dark blue. Between Brighton and Eastbourne are shown an estimated
additional land mass, based on the current cliff erosion rates.
For the rivers, the 5 metre mark is shown however the tidal reach could be further inland due to the back
pressure from the rivers upstream.
Purple lines show proposed changes/potential new Roman Roads based on the landscape/satellite features.
