Air-Photographs near Dorchester, Oxon. (Plates I-II)

  • O.G.S. Crawford
Hide All

1 Thanks are due to Mr R. Ryman, of Didcot, the owner, and Mr M. Fuller, of Dorchester, the tenant, for permission to dig the trenches.

2 The northern field containing the inner, and most of the outer, circle had a crop of horse-beans; the southern one barley. Note the different reactions of these two crops to the ditches. Had the whole field been sown with barley, they would hardly have been visible at all.

3 I am indebted to Mr Kirby, of Dorchester, for this information. The gravel pit is on land which belonged to him when the find was made ; and it was through his agency that the objects were preserved.
