Type and Period (1)
Two possible ring ditches of unknown date are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs of 1977, centred on circa TM38494745 in Boyton parish. The features are approximately12 and 9m in diameter. The date of the ring ditches is unknown but they may represent the location of round house roof drip gullies or the ditches of small Bronze Age round barrow. The cropmarks are, however, very faint and it is possible that they are not archaeological in origin. A similar incomplete ring ditch is visible about 40m to the south west (see BOY 029), which in addition to the possible boundaries or trackways visible as cropmarks to the north west (see BOY 025) may suggest prehistoric settlement activity in this area.
