Type and Period (1)
Isolated dipolar responses probably caused by the introduction of modern ferrous cultural debris into the topsoil during manuring. Seventeen weak positive discrete and linear anomalies may be geological or archaeological in origin. Six broad weak dipolar anomalies, three of which are linear in nature, have been interpreted as backfilled riverine deposits and the readings may indicate a humic content in the deposits. Seven discrete anomalies have been interpreted as being indicative of archaeological rubbish pits (S1). Subsequent monitoring did not reveal any archaeological features (S2).
