Temple Or Shrine
In 1597 an inscribed altarstone was discovered at Bank Top, Greetland, about 2 miles south of Halifax and 2 miles north of the Roman fort and minor settlement at Slack in West Yorkshire. It is possible that this altar represents the remains of a rural shrine. The stone now resides in Trinity College, Cambridge.
