DOE Guide: Hardknott Roman Fort

ImageThe DOE published a series of small folded guides, printed on both sides. They tended to be for unstaffed sites.

The one for Hardknott Roman Fort was prepared by Dorothy Charlesworth and was published in 1972. The cost was 6 p.

The text covers two and a half columns, with an introduction on the name, Mediobogdum. There is then a discussion of the date, followed by a description of the physical remains.

There are three images of the site, and a simple plan covering two (of the four) columns.

There is also a short paragraph on ‘How to get there’.
