Front cover for National Mapping Programme Hadrian’s Wall NMP Project, Bowness on Solway to Carlisle, Cumbria

By Yvonne Boutwood

This report reviews the results of the National Mapping Programme (NMP) for Block 1 of the Hadrian's Wall project, Bowness-on-Solway to Carlisle, mapped between August 2002 and August 2003. This is primarily a management report concentrating on the methodology and products of the air photo interpretation and mapping. There are brief period and thematic summaries that highlight key results of the survey. One topic considered for research is prehistoric and Roman settlement, the latter sometimes described as 'native' or Romano British settlement. A second topic is the Roman defence system along the Cumbrian coast, described as the Solway Frontier.
