Route: Waystations

Waystations along the route are those places in which Sigeric and his companions stayed the night on the return leg of their journey to Rome. They are ususally to be found at river-crossings -- which, in the tenth century, usually meant waiting for the ferryman.

Distinctive waymarkings along the route are usually very sparse -- (practically non-existent in 2005), particularly in northern France -- but are gradually increasing in number.

Modern waystation towns which differ from those listed by Sigeric (e.g. those on the 'red' route) are appended as a sub-page to the closest town mentioned in Sigeric's list.
