Archaeology Notes

NT26NW 476 centred 21453 65119

A series of low cultivation terraces, the longest measuring up to about 120m in length and 12m in breadth, is situated on a S-facing slope about 150m SW of Capelaw farmstead (NT26NW 416). They are possibly part of a field-system associated with the unenclosed platform settlement (NT26NW 30) immediately to the N, and they are overlain by elements of the later field-system around the farmstead.
