Geophysical Survey


A geophysical survey was carried out within the fortified site and in the annexe area at Castle Hill, Almondbury, to enhance the archaeological record and to aid decisions relating to the management of the monument. Anomalies attributed to infilled excavation trenches were identified in the Middle and Outer Wards together with anomalies caused by modern service pipes and ridge and furrow ploughing. In the Annexe a possible sub-rectangular structure has been identified south of an anomaly thought to locate Varley's 'bothy'. Traces of a buried enclosing earthwork have also been identified.
