Archaeology Notes

NO14SW 65 1069 4150.

Cropmarks have revealed two curving features and several large pits on a level terrace about 500m N of Spittalfield. One of the marks (NO 1070 4151) is well-defined and almost certainly indicates the remains of a souterrain; the other (NO 1069 4150) to the S, is more crescentic in shape, and is more likely to be the remains of a round-house.
