This vintage book contains a detailed guide-book the Roman forts and ruins of Eskdale, a dale in Cumberland. There are two significant Roman forts at this location: one on the mountainside of Hardknot, the other at Ravenglass by the sea-shore. "Roman Eskdale" was written and published with the permission of the Cumberland and Westmorland Antquarian and Archaeological Society, and it is highly recommended for those with an interest in ancient Roman ruins and settlements or those wishing to visit the historic location. Contents include: "Eskdale Before the Romans", "The Coming of the Romans", "The Roman Road in Eskdale", "The Pottery and Tilery at Park House", "Headknot Castle", " Headknot Castle: Situation", "Headknot Castle: The Fort (defence)", "Headknot Castle: The Fort (internal buildings)", "Headknot Castle: The Bath-house", "Headknot Castle: The Parade Ground", "Headknot Castle: Its History", "The Roman Fort at Ravenglass", et cetera.
