Mapping of a Medieval Village

22nd May, 2013

At an altitude of approximately 2800m LandScope were involved in the mapping of field terraces associated with a medieval village.  Recent ploughing of the field system has brought many artefacts to the surface and these items were marked, documented and positioned onto the plan.  Archaeological investigations have revealed that the horizontal dispersal of artefacts once buried in ploughed soils is minimal and plotting finds onto a plan can help identify future excavation locations.
