Abstract:
Mapping of archaeological features visible on the available air photographs was undertaken of an area of 9 sq. km. This demonstrated that extensive agricultural landscapes of probable Late Iron Age to Roman date existed around Barnsdale Bar. The coherent character of some aspects these landscapes indicated the likely presence of archaeological features not visible on the air photographs. This predictive quality may be of value in the planning process in the absence of any other direct archaeological evidence. Geophysical surveys and excavation at Long Lane Quarry, Kirk Smeaton Quarry and Barnsdale Bar Quarry and the Western, Eastern and Southern Extension had demonstrated the high archaeological potential where the air photographs could not. The evidence of the excavations at Barnsdale Bar Southern Extension and the other sites in the vicinity had demonstrated that the apparently simple layout of the enclosures, trackways and fields suggested by the crop mark evidence was deceptive and rather that the development of this predominantly agricultural landscape was gradual and to some extent cumulative. This air photo survey had placed the features identified and excavated at Barnsdale Bar Southern Extension in a broader context which could inform the mitigation and planning of future archaeological investigations in the area.
