[Area NY997682] Roman cemetery (site). (1)

"The evidence for a cemetery at Haltonchesters consists in the group of three tombstones, now listed as RIB 1433,1435 and 1436, the findspots of which imply a cemetery a short distance south of the fort. It was because of them that I took steps to have the appropriate conventional sign put on the Hadrian's wall map". (2)
