Crop-Mark in Poppies

About those poppies at the top of the page. During September 2011 I was alerted by the English Heritage Air Photo unit to the presence of a crop-mark in poppies in the Vale of Pickering. I recorded it from the air the next day and then visited the site on the ground to get the photograph above. You can just make out the denser strip of poppies growing over the line of a probably Iron Age or Roman ditch. Seen from the air the result is very impressive

The same area showing the archaeology in far more detail can be seen in LRC geophysical survey results as below.
