Abstract:
Earthwork remains of three adjacent rectangular structures, and associated field banks, were noted from aerial photography in an enclosure known as Top Cow Pasture immediately north of the hamlet of Selside in Upper Ribblesdale, on the eastern side of Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales. The site was hypothesised for the project either as early medieval, as the earthwork footprints and enclosure banks showed strong similarities with those on sites previously excavated by the Group at Chapel-le-Dale and Crummack Dale, or as a component part of the monastic vaccary of Selseth. Excavations within all three structures were designed to determine the detailed morphology, purpose and dating of the site. Targeted excavation within the three structures showed them to be totally aceramic and artefact-poor, with only two metal objects logged. Four radiocarbon dates from secure archaeological contexts place the site within the late Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-Scandinavian eras or the immediate post-Conquest period (cal AD 984 - 1224 at the broadest range of dates); one lies within the period cal AD 409 - 581, the post-Roman/pre-Anglo-Saxon period; while another sits within the Romano-British period, namely cal AD 252 - 406.
