This is a very rare example of an itinerary having no major problems. The excess mile from Whilton Lodge to Cave’s Inn might be caused the meeting of two sets of milestones at a civitas boundary between the Catuvellauni and Corieltauvi (previously known as Coritani) (Rivet & Smith, 1979, p.165). It is also worth noting the corruption of Bannaventa (Whilton Lodge) into Isannavantia, where the “B” has been broken down into a “I” and an “S” (ibid p. 166), presumably the origin of the invented name Issanavaria in Bertram’s hoax itineraries (see page on De Situ Britanniae).
