Butcher's Rise Ring Ditches: Excavations at Barleycroft Farm, Cambridgeshire

Change log


Evans, Christopher

A double-circuit ring-ditch was identified from aerial photographs on the Butcher's Rise knoll, a raised gravel terrace in the western Ouse floodplain. It was tested during the 1995 evaluation in the southern fields at the ARC quarry at Barleycroft Farm and completely excavated during the following summer (Ring- ditch 3). Further trial trenching revealed another much smaller and apparently 'simple', single circuit ring-ditch immediately to the west that was also excavated in its entirety (Ring-ditch 2).
