Surveys conducted since 2006

Extensive field surveys were conducted by the group in 2006 as part of the LHI funded project Tyncnell to Tintinhull evolution of a village. This work with data from recent aerial photos, archived RAF photos together with the 1786 Napper map has allowed us to "map" the general distribution and direction of nearly all the ancient East and West open fields' structure.

Field walking was also undertaken to map out the site of a Roman settlement, survey a shrunken village portion of Tintinhull, map a Romano-British field and a major portion of the West field. This latter has revealed the outline of different phases of farming covering ca. 800 years. Extracts from the reports are posted here . This page also links to extracts from other archeological and geophysics reports completed since 2006. The full reports are available on request.

LIDAR images obtained in 2011

Two areas near the village were suspected as having archeological features worth exploring viz. part of the West Field and the so called "Roman temple" field. This later because it was supposedly an ideal spot for such a temple. LIDAR tiles were purchased to examine the areas.
