Landscape geophysical survey around the small upland ‘henge’ at Yarnbury, Grassington, North Yorkshire revealed few anthropogenic features around the enclosure but did identify a small rectangular structure in the same field.
Sample trenching of this feature, radiocarbon and archaeomagnetic dating proved it to be an earlier Neolithic post and wattle structure of a type that is being increasingly recognised in Ireland and the west of Britain.
Archaeomagnetic dating was first attempted at the Bradford Kaims in 2011.
While the study was successful and the date recovered for a fired hearth feature in Trench 6 (c.4350 cal.
Having parachuted into the Bradford Kaims trenches for the second time, this site is no exception in its wonder.
Placed at the edge of a fen, the variety of soil and sediment types on site is impressive!
Dies ist der erste Befund dieser Art in den Yorkshire Dales, und es wird in diesem Beitrag erörtert, dass die Dales eine zentrale Region nicht nur für den Ost-West-Handel im Neolithikum waren, sondern auch für die Hochlandweidewirtschaft.
