Abstract:
The magnetic contrast across the survey area was sufficient to be able to differentiate between anomalies representing possible archaeological features and background magnetic responses. A total of 53 magnetic anomaly groups were identified as pertaining to potential archaeology. Numerous pits or similar deposits were recorded within the APD, much more so than is usually found in such a relatively small area and this may be significant given the proximity of two possible Romano-British burials adjacent to the survey area. These anomalies will be the result of either archaeological or natural processes and the nature of these deposits can only be assessed by further archaeological evaluation. Of the anomaly groups within the APD, two may indicate the presence of a ditched track or routeway which may coincide to similar anomalies recorded outside the APD. Eleven groups are linear and curvilinear anomalies that typically pertain to archaeological deposits such as enclosures and/or field boundaries. In this case, their number and proximity suggest a relatively complex set of deposits perhaps indicating more than one phase of archaeological activity. Outwith the APD, three anomaly groups coincide with low earthworks observed by the survey team. They appear to form three sides of a possible rectilinear enclosure or similar archaeological feature. In the southern-most part of the survey area, an area of enhanced magnetic responses was recorded which may indicate an area of archaeological activity or an area subjected to a different cultivation regime.
