Priston Pensdown, 2017

publication date: Jun 23, 2017
Geophysical survey was conducted in March 2017 in pursuit of Roman structures on the southern slopes and approach to Pensdown Hill, Priston, Bath and North-East Somerset. Both magnetometry and resistance techniques were used, and a contour survey was also undertaken. The survey did not find any definite Roman features but it located a pond and other related structures known from earlier maps. Some form of rectangular boundary was observed, which passed south into Great Croft, but it had not been observed there during a survey in 2007. It also located a sub-circular feature, possibly a henge, on the south-eastern boundary of the field.
