List entry Description

Summary of Monument

Legacy Record - This information may be included in the List Entry Details.

Reasons for Designation

The part of a prehistoric field system at Tor Noon survives comparatively well and appears to represent a development of different types of field system through time. It will contain important archaeological and environmental evidence relating to this development, the chronologies and construction of the field system through time and the relationship between these adaptations to possible climatic or social changes and the introduction of new foodstuffs or general agricultural practices.

History

Legacy Record - This information may be included in the List Entry Details.

Details

The monument includes part of an extensive prehistoric field system, situated on the north and west facing slopes surrounding Tor Noon. The field system survives as a series of low and irregular earth and stone banks measuring up to 0.5m high with many small rectangular and other irregular shaped fields suggesting an Iron Age or earlier date. There is a possibility of more than one phase of prehistoric field construction which have produced an overall palimpsest of fields. Further archaeological remains in the vicinity are the subject of separate schedulings.
