REPORT ON GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY AT LANCHESTER, COUNTY DURHAM

Author(s): Andy Payne

This survey was undertaken to determine if remains of a `vicus' associated with the Roman fort of Longovicium extended into an area east of the fort, adjacent to the limits of modern Lanchester. Ditches on a possible Roman alignment were detected in places, but overall the results are inconclusive, indicating only slender evidence for archaeological activity. The data does not indicate conclusively whether or not other features such as pits, buildings or burials are present or absent. The survey established the prescence of former cultivation patterns and that the area had been disturbed by a modern pipeline.
