Comment: Ravenglass mentioned in British Archaeology magazine
The coastal erosion of the Roman fort at Ravenglass gets a mention (and a photograph) in the current issue of Council for British Archaeology's magazine British Archaeology. The full reference is:
Waddington, Clive, 2014 'Battling the Waves' British Archaeology, November-December, pp34-39
Ravenglass appears on page 37:
'... Roman remains have long been known to be eroding from the English shoreline, with current examples including the fort at Ravenglass, Cumbria, where the west side of the fort is collapsing down a steep, unstable soft cliff into the estuary of the Esk ...'
Waddington's work, called the North East & North West Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment was funded by English Heritage. The views expressed in the article are his own.
