Ancient Routes Through Pontefract – From Roman Roads to the Broken Bridge by Eric Houlder

£7.00

This fascinating publication, by respected archaeological photographer Eric Houlder, records the ancient routes through Pontefract from the early dark ages to the medieval period.

Drawing on evidence discovered as a result of archaeological excavations throughout the area, and amply illustrated with maps and full colour photographs throughout, this 36 page publication is a must for anyone with an interest in local history. The author also speculates on the exact location of the “broken bridge”, after which the town was reputedly named.
