Prospect Archaeology





A field system of probable Iron age/Romano-British date (MYO3594) lies at the northern extent of the study area and it is possible that further associated features could lie within the current proposed Site. The Roman coin hoards and floor were discovered in the north-west area of the proposed Site, thus indicating potential for further associated sites to be found in this area. Medieval/post-medieval broad ridge and furrow is evident across much of the Site. The current field boundaries show evidence of their previous inclusion as part of an open field system, where they would have been farmed in strips. The HLC has identified an area towards the eastern extent of the proposed Site which is characteristically medieval in its S-shaped curving field boundaries and narrow strip fields. The proposed development area was part of Haxby Moor which is known to have been enclosed between 1769 and 1771. A study of the available mapping from the mid-nineteenth century onwards, indicates that this area has remained in agricultural use from this period onwards.
