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


This fascinating publication has been updated and written, 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.
