Description

Detailed magnetometer survey was carried out over 9 hectares of an 11.7 hectare site. The northern part of the survey has defined the location of part of a large ring ditch previously identified from cropmarks. Other magnetic anomalies indicating the presence of a trackway and possible enclosure or field system ditches are identified northeast, east and southeast of the ring ditch. The presence of a smaller ring ditch, also identified from cropmarks in the southern part of the survey area, has not been substantiated by the magnetometer survey although short sections of two parallel ditches, which may define a trackway or small enclosure, are evident near its location. A number of magnetic anomalies defining the location of the superimposed palaeochannels are present at the southeast of the survey.
