Archaeology Notes

HP50SE 102 5733 0475

At least three conjoined oval fields, probably of prehistoric date, have been recorded on obliques aerial photographs lying on the hillside to the NW of Baila. The field banks are broad and some stretches appear to be faced with large boulders. Some phasing in the sequence of construction is evident.
