Description

A detailed fluxgate gradiometer survey over c.8 hectares of land in one agricultural field, covering the footprint of a proposed new school. The sampling interval was set at 0.25m along 1m traverse intervals, within 20 x 20m grids. A range of anomalies were recorded during the survey, some of which have a potential archaeological origin. Isolated dipolar responses were most common and probably relate to demolition material associated with the former airfield, or ferrous material introduced through manuring.
