Monument record MYO3532 - Iron Age - Roman Settlement

Summary

Cropmarks evidence extensive traces of settlement on Dunnington Common which are probably Romano-British. One cropmark complex covering an area 500 metres by 400 metres comprises blocks of conjoined enclosures of more than one phase which are delimited on the west and partly on the north by a straight linear boundary. Part of a double ditched enclosure shows on the interior adjacent to the boundary. To the north-east of the block there occurs a more dispersed scatter of rectilinear enclosures overlapped in places by linear boundary type features. A ditched trackway about 400 metres long and 10 metres wide, and aligned north-west/south-east runs across the area. Fragmentary linear cropmarks visible to the north-east probably form part of this complex.
