Archaeology Notes

NO21NW 89 centred 20962 18148

See also NO21NW 62 and NO21NW 90.

Aerial photography (RCAHMSAP 1990, 1992 and 1994) has revealed the cropmarks of two parallel ditches about 130m E of the NE corner of the Roman legionary fortress NO21NW 24.00. Their general alignment is NW and SE, but close to the NW end they turn westwards towards the foot of the escarpment below the N defences of the fortress.

The date and purpose of these ditches remain unclear.

Information from RCAHMS (JRS), 4 February 1997.
