Archaeology Notes

NJ16SW 54 111 629

Air photography (by Ian Keillar) has recorded the cropmark of the rounded corner of an enclosure, possibly of considerable size, on a gentle N-facing slope in an area threatened by forestry. Earlier (vertical) air photography shows an adjoining field boundary and it may be a covered drainage ditch, while Keillar has suggested an identification as a Roman temporary camp.

NMRS, MS/712/11.
