Republished here are the papers presented to the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society in the year 1904. Spread over 385 pages and including many illustrations it is a wonderful insight in to the archaeological and antiquarian heritage of both Cumberland and Westmorland. The topics covered by the society were certainly diverse as can be seen by just some of the topics included in this publication. They include: Inglewood Forest, a Sandwith-Grindal pedigree, Gospatrik's Charter, Roman Alters from Cumberland, a Panel of Tapestry at High House, Hawkshead, Penruddock Prebyterian Meet-house, Anne, Countess of Pembroke and Recent Finds, Mediaeval and Romano-British, in and near Carlisle. Anyone with an interest in the history, antiquity and archaeology of Cumberland or Westmorland will find this a fascinating read.
