BRITANNIA 40 Buchanan adiicit George Buchanan, Rerum Scoticarum Historia (1582) II.28. The reader may be surprised that Camden makes very little use of this valuable work, either in his treatment of the ethnography and early history of Britain, or in his later description of Scotland and the Isles. The reason, doubtless, is that Buchanan was held in abhorrance by English loyalists for his republican politics. See, for example, Camden’s expostulation at Rerum Gestarum Angliae et Hiberniae Regnante Elizabetha for the year 1571.
BRITANNIA 41 ut est apud Ammianum This is not a quotation from Ammianus Marcellinus.
BRITANNIA 41 A sidenote attributes this anecdote to Giraldus Cambrensis’ Topographia Wallia. It actually comes from his Descriptio Walliae x.

ROMANI IN BRITANNIA 20 Aegisippus I have no idea who this author is supposed to be, but all the quotations Camden attributes to him come from St. Ambrose’s De Excidio Urbis Hierosolymitanae Libri Quinque. The present passage comes from II.ix.
ROMANI IN BRITANNIA 20 Iosephus etiam De bello Iudaico VI.cccxxxi.3.

ROMANI IN BRITANNIA 62 omnium vigilantissimus Dio Cassius LXXII.viii.2.
ROMANI IN BRITANNIA 64 Unde de hoc rege Ninnius Camden appears to be confusing his sources. At least in the text I have read (the 1848 Bohn version), Nennius (xxii) indeed does mention King Lucius, but he does not provide this information about his Welsh name. Probably it actually comes from the anonymous annotator also cited by Camden at Britannici Armorici 1 (who had an interest in Welsh etymologies).
ROMANI IN BRITANNIA 64 Antoninus Pius A sidenote would lead one to think that this quote comes from Julius Capitolinus’ life of Antoninus Pius in the Scriptores Historiae Augustae series, but this is not the case.

ROMANI IN BRITANNIA 95 si Ausonius Moselle 407f.
ROMANI IN BRITANNIA 95 Robert Cottoni de Connington Camden’s friend, the great antiquarian and bibliophile Sir Robert Cotton (1571-1631). His private library of books, manuscripts, and state papers was a source of incalculable value to Camden in the researches necessary both for Britannia and the Annales, and the Cottonian Collection of the British Library houses many of Camden’s own papers.
