Monument record MYO3517 - Field system Naburn

Summary

A possible Roman or Iron Age field system was seen as cropmarks on air photographs. The system is very fragmentary and has overlapping elements which may represent more than one phase. The system comprises long sinuous ditches with many shorter ditches branching off from them. There are two possible enclosures in this area, one appears to be appended to one of the sinuous ditches and is semi-circular in form. The other possible enclosure, which is further to the west, is rectilinear, almost square in appearance.
