Comments: Hampshire, also known as Hants, is located in the center of the English southern coast. Originally the center of Belgic settlement in Britain, it was incorporated into the Roman Empire by Claudius in the mid-1st Century A.D. Overrun by the South Saxons in the sixth century, the province became the heartland of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Wessex, which had its capital at Winchester . It was from this small beginning that the Kingdom of England arose. Ecclesiastical authority is vested in the Archbishop of Canterbury . The province is quite fertile and well watered, enjoys a mild climate, and has several fine ports, which encourages a good deal of commerce and industry.
