 Record Description See EDM Survey as Swaledale Land Boundaries Project Interim Report No 10, Figure 1 (1993 Season)and the OS High Level Aerial Photo extracts as attached. North facing hill slope settlement with rectangular buildings of medieval character (A,B and C on the plan)and a probable Late Roman Farmstead Settlement with house platforms and rectangular yards similar to the settlement, Site 103, excavated by SWAAG at the Hag, Fremington below. Long field banks descend the slopes from this RB Settlement. The Linear Dyke certainly slights the settlement and field system and must therefor post date this site.
