Attested: AI itinera 6 and 8 Margiduno.
Where: East Bridgford, Nottingham, Roman town and possible fort on the Fosse Way, at SK700416.
Name origin: Marg- probably came from marga ‘marl’, which seems reasonable for the good agricultural soil in an area that is generally flat and unremarkable. R&S were sceptical (probably correctly) of an alternative based on a Celtic word for margin. See also about dunum.
