Along the left side of the map are portrayed the coats of arms
of the families of the Earls of Essex, totalling seven.
In the bottom right hand corner is a birds' eye view of the city of Colchester,
with all of it's streets and notable buildings being detailed by a legend.
Above the plan of Colchester, three Roman coins are illustrated,
depicting the heads of the Roman Emperor Constantine and his parents.
Essex back then was a fairly wooded county, and all of it's forests,
including Hatfield and Waltham, are marked.
London and the Thames, complete with sailing ships, are shown at the bottom of the map.
The detail gone into on this map is superb, making it a lovely present for anyone from the county.
