The Roman Map of Britain Maporitum Ladyward?, Lockerbie, Dumfries & Galloway
Maporiton (R&C 163) next
Presumably Maporitum 'Mapo- ford' derives its name from Locus Maponi (R&C 228). Ladyward is on the eastern edge of the floodplain between Lochmaben and Lockerbie. The fort is located on the Roman road Margary 76 (lockerbie-lochmaben, for nithsdale). A fort or settlement at Lochmaben would be preferable assignment, but at this point only the remains of a marching camp are known.
