Dating Narrative

    • This mound is one of 18 mounds that were identified within and between the Victoria Camp earthworks during an aerial and topographic survey by Roger Martlew in 2007. They are part of a landscape that is assigned to be general Iron Age/Romano British, although there might also have been earlier phases of use of the area. This particular mound is recorded in the Historic Environment Register and was partially excavated. It contained bronze studs with iron nails that were probably parts of a shield’s decoration (Martlew, R. D. 2007. Langcliffe Scar Local Nature Reserve Archaeological Survey 2007. Yorkshire Dales Landscape Research Trust).
