Certain and Probable Roads

As described on the Roads home page, this list includes all roads where a Roman origin is probable or certain, incoroporating the categories on the map as follows:-

Known, (incorporates classes 5 and 4 of the NEHHAS system) includes any road where Roman origin is certain and where the route is known with reasonable certainty from  field work and excavation.

Probable; (NEHHAS class 3) Accumulative evidence upon the alignments, but without the excavation evidence. Quite a lot of the Margary entries are of this class. Individual pieces of evidence may be coincidence, but the whole gains credibility the more alignment evidence is gathered, until it becomes quite probable that the alignments are Roman.
