South Kirkby Camp, South Kirkby, West Yorkshire

Gradiometer Survey

Introduction

A magnetometer survey was carried out over a 4.0ha area at South Kirkby Iron Age Camp, South Kirkby, West Yorkshire. The object of the survey was to determine whether there was any evidence for the presence of a reported southern annexe to the camp and, if possible, to determine the limits of the site. It was also hoped to evaluate the presence and extent of any sub-surface archaeological remains within the scheduled area and, where possible, to characterise the archaeology thus located.

The gradiometry data revealed no evidence for the presence of an attached southern annexe. Inside the scheduled monument there are anomalies which are of possible archaeological origin and which may indicate the presence of a second, inner ditch and an internal enclosure.
