New report : a Roman site near Laverton Piggery?

The field just east of the Piggery, by the crossroads just to the north of Laverton village, is 1 – 2 kilometres south–east of BACAS’ excavations at Blacklands. The field itself slopes very gently to the east. The northern portion is gentle, but it then slopes steeply away into the valley of the Wheel Brook.

Time became available in mid winter to conduct two days of survey, and this limited the area which could be investigated to just over 2 hectares. The survey concentrated on magnetometry, but the small area of resistance survey provided support to the magnetometry results.
