Abstract:
A vehicle towed caesium magnetometer survey was conducted over an area of 27.5ha covering a range of probable Iron Age to Roman enclosed settlements at Paxcroft Farm, Hilperton, Wiltshire, recorded through the initial aerial photographic phase of the National Archaeological Identification Surveys: West Wiltshire (NAIS, Lowland Pilot). More limited earth resistance survey (0.9ha) was carried out during the preliminary phase of magnetometer coverage, in advance of an excavation within the southern oval enclosure. The geophysical surveys successfully clarified the extent and layout of the plough levelled enclosure remains, resolving some confusion between geological and archaeological responses that had hindered the interpretation of the aerial photographic evidence.
