This face shield can be used as a headband, bandana, balaclava, wristband or neck warmer. This is not a medical grade face mask, but it could still help prevent the spread of coronavirus/covid-19 if you wear it when you go outside.
Back in medieval times Latin was the language of maps, and Wallia was the medieval Latin name for 'Wales'. The map's full name, 'WALLIA PRINCIPATUS Vulgo WALES' means 'The principality of Wallia, commonly known as Wales'.
Most of the place names are in recognisable English, however! By 1645, many of Wales' most well known towns and villages already exist. From Abergavenny to Hay, Caernarfon to Denbigh. Cardiff, Newport and Chepstow are all clearly visible along the south coast, as are all of the little villages on the west coast in Pembrokeshire.
