Source/Archive record SYO1742 - Wheatlands, Upper Poppleton

Title Wheatlands, Upper Poppleton
Date/Year 2015


Several anomalies of uncertain origin were detected by the survey, including an unusual ā€œUā€ shaped response and a rectilinear pattern of weak negative trends. An archaeological origin cannot be entirely ruled out due to the proximity of a possible Roman road, but they and other trends are equally if not more likely to be due to agricultural or natural effects. A past ridge and furrow agricultural regime was recorded, as well as more modern ploughing. At least one old field boundary was detected.
