Date

August 2014

Description

A metric survey of two mounds and their immediate environs on Spooner’s Allotment was carried out to record and accurately locate the earthworks. The survey has confirmed the interpretation of one of the mounds as a burnt mound, dating from c 2000-1500 BC, and suggested that the other mound may also be a burnt mound. The archaeological features were surveyed using survey grade differential GPS.
