Monument record MYO3525 - Field System Naburn

Summary

Iron Age or Roman rectilinear ditched enclosures, which are probably part of a field system, are visible as cropmarks on air photographs. One enclosure contains a roundhouse and two other incomplete curvilinear enclosures are possibly also round houses. There is a field system to the south (recorded in SE 64 NW 29) and a extensive one to the east (recorded in SE 64 NW 32), but it is uncertain if they are all part of the same system.

Full Description

NMR Information:

Iron Age/Roman rectilinear ditched enclosures, which are probably part of a field system are visible as cropmarks on air photographs, centred at SE 6061 4655 . Some of the enclosures are sub-divided and one is double-ditched (SE 6067 4663). There are groups of pits, possibly of archaeological origin (recorded in SE 64 NW 30), scattered amongst the enclosures, but the relationship between the two is uncertain. To the north are more enclosures (recorded in SE 64 NW 31), but it is uncertain if they are part of the same field system. (1-2)
