Report on Geophysical Survey, March 1995: Raunds Area Project: Cropmark, Near Glebe Farm, Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire
Author(s): Andy Payne
A geophysical survey was carried out over the cropmark of a suspected barrow at Glebe Farm near Higham Ferrers, Northants in response to a request from the Central Archaeology Service of English Heritage. The aim of the survey was to locate the cropmark feature on the ground, confirm its interpretation as a barrow, and map any additional related internal and external features. Magnetometer and resistivity surveys were carried out and located a series of features of greater complexity and extent than the single ring-ditch anticipated from the cropmark evidence. The results indicate the presence of at least six annular and oval ring-ditches with interrupted circuits and a triangular enclosure. Other possible ditch alignments were also detected, perhaps forming a second enclosure around the ring-ditches.
