Monument record MYO3647 - Heslington East Iron Age


This Monument appears on the Onsite Archaeology and University Reports Late Iron Age: comprising the square enclosure, containing at least one, and possibly two, roundhouses. The late Iron Age evidence therefore may indicate a resettlement of an otherwise unoccupied area. The Iron Age settlement within these two fields appears to represent a single farmstead, with associated ditched field boundaries. Field 9: • A series of roundhouses with associated hearths and metalworking areas Either a small, sunken-floored building or a covered working area, seemingly of early Roman date and thus quite possibly in use with the nearby roundhouses
