Monument record MYO3324 - Ditch system Copmanthorpe

Summary

A series of linear ditches of uncertain date were seen as cropmarks on air photos. They could form part of some kind of field system. Oblique aerial photographs show the cropmarks of part of a possible settlement complex straddling the Colton, and Copmanthorpe parish boundary, where it meets Appleton Roebuck. The date of the site is uncertain, but on morhological grounds it probably is Romano-British. The portion in Copmanthorpe appears to be overlain in part bylevelled ridge and furrow cultivation.
