Monument record MYO4968 - Romano-British field system and enclosures
|Grid reference||Centred SE 6143 4908 (401m by 209m)|
|Unitary Authority||City of York, North Yorkshire|
Type and Period (2)
1st-2nd century Romano-British field system excavated in 2016 following several phases of evaluiation beginning in 1996. Excavation revealed enclosure ditches, gullies, pits and a ring ditch.
The enclosures have a close date range similat to findings at nearby St Oswalds School (2nd century). In contrast to enclosures and field systems at Heslington East )Iron Age- 4th century).
The site appears to be rural in character, the enclosures and field systems suggest a pastoral and arable use. Pottery and CBM assembles hint at close links to York and a settlement nearby.
