Hut Knowe

Field System; Cord Rig

NT 79415 15632

A field system comprising at least six separate fields and cord rig cultivation lie on the gentle slopes to the N, W and SE of Hut Knowe settlement (NT71NE 57). The cord rig cultivation within these fields covers an area of at least 1 ha.

Recent aerial photographs (RCAHMSAP 2000, D 46334 CN, D 46334 CN) show a bank associated with the field system to the W extending from NW to SE, over the settlement walls, to meet the axial stony bank which runs from SSW to NNE through the settlement.
