Archaeology Notes

NO02SE 34 0676 2461 and 0681 2464.

Air photographs reveal a sub-circular enclosure some 250m NE of North Blackruthven farm, at a height of c. 37m OD. It measures c. 61.25m in diameter within a ditch c. 1.25m in width, broken by two opposed entrances, in NE and SW. Immediately to the NE is a second enclosure, measuring c. 65m NE-SW by c. 52.5m transversely within a narrow ditch broken by one or possibly two entrances. A pit-alignment passes through these two enclosures. Harding and Lee consider that these enclosures are unlikely to be henge-related.
