Hi all
What does this look like to anyone? Picture is top North

Its from google earth on one of my permissions, top square has a round feature 25 metres diameter inside, bottom square looks like a square feature about 40 metres each side of the feature, also inside looks like two small circle features

Two Celtic Staters, possible iron age bead (copper alloy) and the rim of a metal vessel / pot sherd very close by, bit lower down the field on earlier visits some copper alloy slag that's what made me have a closer look at the area, only shows up in a particular year on Google earth when looking at the historical imagery.

Next visit I wil grid the area

Regards Steve

The square one looks very definite. Weren’t very square buildings and enclosures not introduced until the Roman’s arrived?

I guess having a go at dating them can be done by size, shape and orientation. I’m sure I read somewhere that villas/ houses were built to a pretty standard plan, as were Roman camps. That could be complete rubbish though so feel free to correct :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
