Geophysical Survey

Date 17 February 2009 - 6 March 2009

Event ID 605107

Category Recording

Type Geophysical Survey


NO 40083 50019 Geophysical surveys using a fluxgate gradiometer (80 x 100m), resistivity (40 x 60m) and

ground-penetrating radar (50 x 30m), were undertaken on 17 February–6 March 2009, in a field adjacent to the

St Orland’s Stone Pictish cross slab. Features included two possible sub-circular enclosures and possible small barrows to the W of the cross slab. Disturbance adjacent to the SW of St Orland’s Stone may indicate the presence of burials and trenching associated with 19th-century excavations. In general the results were relatively poorly defined due to the background geology and the likely truncation of archaeological features during recent agricultural activity.
