CALCA´RIA in Britain, distant, in the second Itinerary, 9 miles from Eburacum (York). The termination -caster, the presence of Roman remains, and the geological condition of the country, all point to the present town of Tadcaster, as the modern equivalent. So does the distance. Newton Kyme, a little higher up the river, has by some writers been preferred: the general opinion, however, favours Tadcaster.
