This Roman fort at Hardknott Pass in Cumbria dates to the 2nd century CE.
As part of our efforts to keep you abreast of things archaeological, I’d like to draw your attention to a documentary on BBC 4 tonight. Its an episode of BBC 2’s excellent Timewatch franchise. Cunningly entitled “Roman Britain: A Timewatch Guide” it is just that. What is interesting is that it will be using BBC archive material to show how our knowledge, understanding and, perhaps more importantly, our interpretation of the Romans in Britain has changed over the past 50 years. It airs at 22.00hrs and is presented by Prof Alice Roberts of the University of Birmingham.
We hope you enjoy the programme, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
