Abstract:
Marne Barracks is located on the World War II airfield of RAF Catterick and close to the Roman Fort of Cataractonium. It is adjacent to the A1 which locally follows the approximate path of Roman Dere Street. The current widening of the A1 has revealed a wealth of archaeology. Castle Hills is a scheduled motte and bailey castle (built c.1120-c.1125) lying on the eastern edge of the airfield. It has not previously been subjected to a geophysical survey. In preparation for Exercise Marne Explore 15, which is part of Project Nightingale (a project to develop and enhance the capabilities of injured military personnel) Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group was requested by the Ministry of Defence to undertake GPS, magnetometry and resistivity surveys of the Castle Hills site and also to undertake a further magnetometry survey of part of the airfield previously surveyed by Archaeological Services Durham University in 2002. The results at Castle Hills revealed the bailey to be heavily contaminated with query World War II dipolar magnetic debris and, whilst the resistivity data did show some strong positive results, they too may be due to World War II airfield defence and communications installations. The magnetic results from a selected area of the old airfield were essentially identical with those obtained in 2002.
