Archaeology Notes

Oblique aerial photography (RCAHMSAP 2001) has recorded the cropmarks of what may be a souterrain and a pit. The souterrain measures about 15m in length, curving in an arc from WNW to ENE with blunt ends, and 2-3m across. The pit lies about 10m to the SE of the E end of the souterrain.
