Description

A scheme of archaeological evaluation by trial trenching was carried out in advance of development and ditches on land at Wheatlands, Upper Poppleton, near York. Thirteen trenches were excavated in total, twelve of which contained archaeological features, despite little obvious potential seen in an earlier geophysical survey. A ridge and furrow, strip field system was identified across much of the site which formed the basis of the modern enclosed field boundaries. Earlier ditched features and pits were also excavated, highlighting the presence of a likely Romano-British landscape of ditched field boundaries and enclosures.
