Abstract:
This document outlines the second phase of The Archaeology of Ancrum: Mantle Walls project, involving a detailed geophysical survey of the Mantle Walls area of Ancrum village, Scottish Borders. This took place on 4-7 November 2011, involving a combination of gradiometer and resistivity survey techniques. The gradiometer survey revealed numerous rectilinear anomalies at the crest of the hill which seem to relate to the medieval bishop's palace reported at or near this location since the 18th century. Related linear anomalies may be enclosures or drainage features, and an unexpected byrelike structure was detected in the lower ground. The resistance survey was more limited in scale, but also revealed rectilinear anomalies on a similar orientation to those seen in the magnetic survey. Both techniques show a high level of disturbance to the underlying archaeology, and recommendations for exploratory trial trenching with a view toward protection via scheduling this important monument are offered.
