Abstract:
This survey was part of a programme of archaeological investigations at Countisbury Castle commissioned as part of the Unlocking Our Costal Heritage project. Countisbury Castle is an Iron Age promontory fort lies on a west-facing spur between the high sea cliff to the north and the steep sided East Lyn Valley to the south. Fifty-three magnetic anomaly groups and fourteen resistance anomaly groups were identified as representing possible archaeological deposits or features. Of these anomaly groups, the majority are thought to relate to former cultivation with field boundaries, strip lynchets and remnant ploughing patterns being provisionally identified. Resistance anomaly groups may represent a north-south trending archaeological feature at the western end of the promontory fort. Gradiometer anomaly groups seem to represent a sub-circular feature that is visible on Google Earth images. An archaeological origin is possible for such an anomaly group although a former quarry or natural feature cannot be ruled out. Magnetic anomaly groups and resistance anomaly hint at possible archaeological deposits or structures adjacent to the extant earthworks at the eastern end of the promontory fort.
