Basically, this map shows you the modern heritage of people in certain parts of the British Isles. For example, most of the people in the North East are of Scandinavian or 'Pictish-Scandinavian' descent. While the southeast is mostly 'Norman-English', and the southwest is Cornish.
Notably, this map also shows the ancient (iron age) tribes of the British Isles, such as the Silures of Wales and their neighbours the Dobunni and Ordovices. These tribes were mostly detailed by the Romans when they arrived here and tried to conquer them.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm), and 24x30 inches (61x76cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 70 inches (180cm) tall. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the X version of this map.
Please note that the 24x30 inch map has white edges that may help with framing, or you can snip them off easily if needed. All other maps, and all framed maps, are just like the listing images.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your ancient tribe or heritage! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain tribe or ethnographic background is shown on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone from Great Britain or who is interested in the ancient history and peoples of the British Isles.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
