Dating Narrative

    • This quarry scoop is one of five that were investigated by 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. The feature falls outside the boundary of Victoria Camp at the northeast and could have been used for the extraction of stones used within the camp (Martlew, R. D. 2007. Langcliffe Scar Local Nature Reserve Archaeological Survey 2007. Yorkshire Dales Landscape Research Trust).
