Archaeology Notes

NO21NW 88 20463 17761

Aerial photography (RCAHMSAP 1989) has recorded the cropmarks of several linear features immediately W of the Roman legionary fortress NO21NW 24.00. The slighter features are probably the furrows of broad rig-and-furrow cultivation, but others clearly represent more substantial ditches.

While the date and purpose of these ditches are unknown, it is likely that they are elements of the defences of annexes or enclosures associated with the Roman occupation of the site.

Information from RCAHMS (JRS), 4 February 1997.
