This old, full colour and wonderful map shows the ancient county of Sussex as it was in 1611. It was created by John Speed and engraved by Jodocus Hondius, and originally published in Speed's "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine".

Many of the towns, villages and cities in Sussex are already visible in this map. Colchester - the capital of West Sussex today - was the capital of Sussex back then. There's a lovely detailed image of Colchester as it was in 1611 in the top left corner.

Some of the towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map include: East Grinstead, Crawley, Hastings, Brighton, Arundel, Petworth, Amberley, Lewes, Ditchling, Ashdown Forest, Worth, Ardingly, Rye, Shoreham and many more. But of course, many of them are spelt in their Early Modern English forms.

Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown!

The coat of arms of the Monarch of the United Kingdom appears in the top right, along with the Monarch's motto Dieu et mon droit - God and my right.

This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Sussex or who has Sussex in their heart.
