Kellaways Farm, Langley Burrell Without, Wiltshire: Report on Geophysical Survey, May 2014

Author(s): Paul Linford, Andy Payne, Neil Linford, Zoe Edwards

Geophysical survey was conducted over a rectilinear ditched enclosure of at Kellaways Farm, Langley Burrell Without, Wiltshire, which had been recorded through the initial aerial photographic phase of the National Archaeological Identification Survey (NAIS) Lowland Pilot: West Wiltshire project. The site was subsequently investigated by excavation and found to be of early Roman date. A vehicle-towed, caesium magnetometer array and earth resistance survey were used to cover an area of approximately 0.7ha, to confirm both the location of the enclosure and provide some additional, internal detail. Due to the presence of a standing crop in the field it was not possible to extend the survey to determine the wider relationship between the enclosure and adjacent field systems.
