Dating Narrative

    • This shaft is one of two shafts 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 shaft is indirect evidence for contemporary mineral working, as it is ‘typical of shallow shafts that are located where a mineral vein becomes visible in the natural outcrop’ (Martlew, R. D. 2007. Langcliffe Scar Local Nature Reserve Archaeological Survey 2007. Yorkshire Dales Landscape Research Trust).
