The Roman military constructions that line parts of the Yorkshire Coast pose a problem to both historian and archaeologist. Initially described as being mere signal stations does them a disservice. Their size, positioning and layout begs the observer to consider other options. What led to their construction; what was their planned purpose and what was their eventual fate. Tonight we consider questions and possible answers.
