Question 1: Why is there a Rusland on this map?

Question 2: What is the name of this lake?

Question 3: What Roman fort may have been located at the place called Waterhead up above? (hint: See the Itinerarium provinciarum Antonini Augusti – or see below*)


Another interesting example from the same source (Itinerariumagain, in Britain):

Item a Calleva Isca Dumnuniorum mpm CXXXVI sic
Vindomi mpm XV
Venta Belgarum mpm XXI
Brige mpm XI
Sorbiodoni mpm VIII
Vindogladia mpm XII
Durnonovaria mpm VIII
Muriduno mpm XXXVI
Isca Dumnuniorum mpm XV

You can read more about, for example, the town of Salisbury (aka Sorbiodoni aka Sorvioduni) in the county of Wiltshire (of course!) over here.  Strange, no?

* Clanoventa or Galava (i.e., Waterhead).
