Abstract/Summary

A resistivity survey was conducted over the earthworks of a scheduled Roman Camp, SAM 1020976, at Huntington South Moor, under a Section 42 Licence granted by Historic England. This survey was part of a Community Archaeology project to excavate the unscheduled remains of this camp beneath the former Ryedale Stadium pitch. This camp is one of two Roman camps identified by aerial survey in this part of York in 2002. The survey identified the well-preserved remains of the Roman ditch and bank features at the western corner of the camp and provided comparative data for the excavation and interpretation of the camp remains found under the neighbouring stadium pitch.
