Armorica is hilly and wooded - one of several places in Britain and Gaul with a Coed Arden (Forest of Arden) which means 'high forest', a forest on high ground (not in valleys).
The details recorded by Pytheas were interpreted by Ptolemy in the second century AD, and this 1490 Italian reconstruction of the section covering the British Isles and northern Gaul shows Ptolemy's characteristically lopsided Scotland at the top The Belgae enter into a confederacy against the Romans in fear of Rome's eventual domination over them.
