Trent & Peak Archaeology
Geophysical survey following DBA. Geophysical survey demonstrated the presence of potential buried archaeological features. These comprised: • A large, possibly Romano-British enclosure. • A small enclosure possibly related to the Roman road. • Evidence of agricultural activity in Field 1. • Evidence for a possible trackway in the western part of Field 1. • Evidence for past human activity in the form of pits and ditches in Field 2. The uneven distribution of geophysical anomalies across the areas surveyed should probably be seen as a result of the changing geological background and not necessarily representative of a scarcity of archaeological features in those areas where geophysical anomalies were fewer.
