Geophys overlay on google maps

Update to *Am I seeing things*.

As mentioned I found a report for my new permission, that has geophys maps included. For my records ive had a play with Google Earth and managed to over lay this on top.

The red and yellow marks are suggested that it could be archaeologic results.( the bold red line is a footpath) No digging has been done and this report was done over 6 years ago. It is suggested that it has features that suggest a romano-british ladder settlement. I love the research side of things when metal detecting, so this has been a big thing for me.

Now hopefully I will find some interesting bits there.... I do have a partifact found which does have some age, once I get it cleaned ill get a pic up for ID. I'm hoping it could be Roman lol but knowing my luck it wont be lol

Indications of rectangular structures next to a trackway are always interesting. You could make some guesstimates of their dimensions and see whether they fit broadly with that type of settlement. A number of reports available on excavated 'ladder' settlements aka 'linear'. Might be worth fieldwalking cultivated fields looking for datable pottery.

Interesting post.

Detecting research is made so much easier for us these days

I used to spend hours in our City central library prior to going out on a dig.

Happy Hunting,

Google earth has a measurement feature so I could get a reasonably accurate measurement :) that's a brilliant idea thank you.

After further research, this area has produced a couple of roman finds about four years ago.

Now all I have to do is wait for these storms to DO ONE so I can get out there. I'm praying that this field will yield me my first roman coin :)

A lot of digging through internet files to be honest, following link upon link through historic records, and talking to the farmer.
