Site Event/Activity record EEM14530 - 2014: MS, RS - Quincunx and Mortuary Enclosure, Challacombe Common
University of Leicester
A series of geophysical surveys were undertaken during March 2014 on two sites on Challacombe Common in Exmoor National Park. In summary earth resistance and magnetometry surveys were conducted on a rectangular enclosure (MDE12830) and a stone setting (MDE1044) known as a quincunx. The work was undertaken by volunteers from the Parracombe Archaeology and History Society and the University of Leicester. The results have shed further light on two unusual sites, both in national and regional perspectives, and demonstrate the value of geophysical prospection in upland environments.
