That looks very interesting geoff.
I hope you can get a more permanent permission on that site because it looks like it could keep you busy for a good few years

It is wet over there, as some areas are prone to being claggy after heavy rain combined with tractor usage.
But those areas are not really infringing on the part of the field I'm interested in for the present.
I own land adjacent to this, and have had had a few good celtic and roman bits and bobs.
I'm fortunate in this, though as you know, every silver lining has a cloud!

Is there any Lidar of this site? There looks to be some enclosures, or they could be scrubbed out hedges?
Good luck ::g

I'm not sure in all honesty, though one outline seems to enclose the main roundhouse, suggesting enclosure rather than later hedging?

There have been some great finds from around there from every period back to Neolithic, so your chances are looking great. ::g

Thank you, I have some knowledge of the area, having lived here for over 30 years,but without giving the location away it is hard to explain.
I own land here, and live within a few hundred yards,
Your message I'm sure will be of great interest to me. ::g

Does look very promising Geoff. Curious small marks! Makes it look like it’s had Chicken-pox :D

Best of luck, looking forward to seeing what comes up ::g

The large circular mark, if this was a roundhouse, it's of substantial size going off the size of the surrounding trees, therefore there should be a good hearth in the centre. You won't miss it, the clay will be baked and burned - it's just a matter of how deep it will be.
Is this a previously unrecorded site?

Good luck and look forward to seeing what you discover ::g

Thank you, I shall be leaving the area of the roundhouse out of my search area, through choice, concentrating on those areas not showing historic field markings, though it is not a protected site.
Some archaeological investigation was carried out on the roundhouse, with flints being found. ::g

Lovely looking site it should produce some great finds, I would check and make sure its not a Scheduled Ancient monument first.

More in response to the comment about the "hearth and depending how deep it is". The images suggest a relatively well preserved site that should be considered on a broader view as important if unknown.

Indeed, highly important, in this instance it is not, though I will give it a very wide berth, as I mentioned earlier. ::g

Indeed, we cannot go near certain areas such as scheduled monuments, areas of SSI status etc, at least without a license.
I have no wish to disturb archaeology, enthusiastic as I am in my hobby,I would not be comfortable breaching any codes or restrictions,we have enough latitude to detect already, why threaten that by overstepping the mark,and potentially causing damage to ancient assets.
I am not a plunderer, I have never sold a find,even though I have a few desirable coins etc,(the joys of owning land),
My enthusiasm ,like that of most here I'm sure,is for the hobby, not for being a nuisance. :D
