Description

AA programme of archaeological observation, investigation and recording was undertaken by Humber Field Archaeology during groundwork associated with the excavation of a cable trench and various pole replacements on the 11kw overhead line rebuild between Scoreby near Gate Helmsley and Kexby in the City of York. Little or no surface evidence was found for archaeological landscape features during the walking of the line rebuild route. It appeared that the ridge and furrow denoted by the HERs MYO2668, MYO2681 and MYO2665 had been ploughed out at some point. Longevity of occupation in the vicinity of Lime Field Farm was suggested by the presence of ridge and furrow in the paddock and pottery dating from the 12th to 14th centuries in the field immediately to the east.
