"Justinianus the First Centurion and Vindicianus the Magistrate,¹ built this tower and fortification from its foundations."
(RIB 721; sandstone slab)
A sandstone slab was found in 1774 alongside the minor road from Scarborough to Robin Hood's Bay, about 9 miles north of Scarborough, while digging foundations for the Raven Hall Hotel at Ravenscar. This stone represents concrete evidence of a small Roman "fortification with [watch] tower" on the cliff-top here. The stone now resides in the Yorkshire Museum, York.
