Roman Roads in Yorkshire
 - Possible and Claimed Roads

As described on the Roads home page, this list includes all roads where a Roman origin is less than certain, deemed possible at best, incorporating the categories on the map as follows:-

Possible (HEHHAS Classes 1 & 2): Sound documentary theory, including long lines of parish, township and field boundaries, place-names, medieval charters, aerial photography, but without sufficient field evidence upon alignments to be able to declare a “probable” Roman origin. Some Margary entries of this class.

Claimed (NEHHAS Class 0): Based on limited documentary or field evidence, and local tradition. Not possible to assign any probability of Roman origin from the evidence available. Margary entries in this class exist.
