HOE HILLS, DOWSBY, LINCOLNSHIRE. REPORT ON GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS, OCTOBER 1994 AND MARCH 1995
Author(s): M A Cole
Geophysical survey was undertaken at Hoe Hills, Dowsby, Lincolnshire in response to a request from the Fenland Management Project (FMP). An initial magnetometer survey was carried out in October 1994 to assist with the interpretation of multi-period activity revealed by FMP excavations already under way at the site. Acting on the results of this survey the magnetometer coverage was extended during a second visit in March 1995 to encompass crop mark activity to the north of the excavations. Additionally, this visit provided an opportunity to investigate the relationship between the archaeology and a former river channel also evident in the APs. The site conditions proved ideal for magnetometer survey and results of rare clarity were obtained. Widespread settlement activity was mapped and the former river course was also detected clearly. Unfortunately the results do not allow any confident conclusions to be drawn with regard to the relationship between the channel and the buried archaeology.
