Notes:

The engraving shows a part of Hadrian’s Wall, calling it the Wall of Severus in a confusion common since the 17th century. The Wall of Hadrian is a UNESCO world heritage site.

The appearance of the Wall at House-stead is shown in Fig. 132; and this engraving suggests a conviction of the accuracy of Camden’s description of the Wall:—“I have observed the track of it running up the mountains and down again in a most surprising manner.” (p. 43)
