2015

A sixth season of investigation took place in September 2015. Over seven days, assisted by local volunteers, electrical resistance survey (using Geoscan RM15 and RM85 meters) was carried out over an area of approximately 1.5 hectares, creating a total surveyed area in this field of c.3.3ha. Previous surveys had established that the barrows and timber circle obvious from aerial photo transcription are evident in the resistance results. The aim of this season was to attempt to get a better understanding of the length of the cursus, and to link the independent surveys from previous years. Experiential survey to record sensory experiences of the landscape was also carried out, illustrating complex patterns of sight and sound and enabling new interpretations of how past peoples may have experienced the monuments and landscape.
