Type and Period (1)
Cropmarks of field boundary etc, of at least 2 phases (S1), one of which traverses ring ditch, FLK 018.
Cropmarks of field boundaries of possible medieval and post-medieval date are visible on aerial photographs to the south of Back Lane in Falkenham parish, centred on circa TM29133837. As described above, 2 phases of enclosure can be seen. Possibly the earliest in date are two very straight boundaries that abut Back lane at about 90 degrees at circa TM29183851 and TM29293844. The curvilinear boundaries visible crossing the straighter features potentially relate to, or influenced the form of, field boundaries marked on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map of circa 1884, an are probably therefore medieval or post-medieval in date (S2).
