This is one of the oldest, full colour complete maps of England and Ireland - with a unique twist: It shows all of the invasions and civil wars of England and Ireland since the conquest of the British Isles by the Normans in 1066.

This intriguing and historically fascinating invasion map was put together masterfully by Cornelius Danckerts in 1676, but it's based on John Speed's original map of England and Ireland from 1611.

For example, did you know there was the Battle of Barnet - part of the War of the Roses - in 1471? Or how about the Siege of Oxford in 1644? All of these conflicts and more are visible on this weird and wonderful invasion map of the British Isles.

This old map was hand coloured over 400 years ago and, as you can see, is still in amazing condition for a map of this age.

Many of the towns, villages and cities of England, Wales and Ireland are already clearly visible in this map. I won't list every town, but suffice it to say there's every county capital, many seaside towns, and many more in between.

Ireland was rather oddly shaped back in 1605, but all of the major towns and cities are already visible - Cork, Dublin, Belfast, etc.

Scotland is just about visible at the top of the map - but only just.

And of course, Wales and all of its towns are clearly visible. You might be wondering what Brecknock is... well, it's the archaic form of Brecon!

This map will be completely sharp at all sizes, though the text will be quite small at 12x16 inches (30x40cm). It's a lovely map at 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it looks great at sizes all the way up to 70 inches wide (180cm, 6ft).

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport. Please contact me if you would like to frame one of the larger prints for a custom order.

 

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select the free worldwide shipping option, you can usually expect to receive your map around 10 days after you order. It may be faster or slower, depending on the impact of coronavirus in your country.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 days.

Customers in the US, Australia and Canada: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer in your country, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with some great printers and framers around the world for years - so don't worry, your map will still look amazing!

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on thick matte (not glossy) paper that feels high quality. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.
