Farmstead, Lavenham 29817_004 Featured Archaeology Print

Farmstead, Lavenham 29817_004

Late medieval farmstead in Lavenham, Suffolk. This 2015 aerial photograph shows the buried remains of a late medieval farmstead revealed as cropmarks. You can see some of the farma??s field boundaries and a trackway which linked this farm to its neighbours. They are reminders of the generations of families who lived and worked the land here. These farms were abandoned after changes in farming practice and illustrate the widespread changes that have affected the rural landscape of Suffolk over the last 500 years. This is a good example of the many Suffolk farmsteads Historic England has discovered from the air in recent years. It looks similar to prehistoric settlements found in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire but is more typical of late medieval farmsteads still in use elsewhere on the Suffolk clay lands

Enclosures, Stoke Hammond 26957_027 Featured Archaeology Print

Enclosures, Stoke Hammond 26957_027

Neolithic long mortuary enclosures in Stoke Hammond, Buckinghamshire
Features below the plough soil that cause cropmarks can be man-made or natural. In this case it's both. The man-made features are two elongated, capsule shaped enclosures, a circular enclosure and a few large pits. The rest are marks in the gravel, created naturally during the Ice Age. The capsule shaped enclosures are examples of one of the oldest types of monument in Britain called Neolithic Long Mortuary Enclosures. They're thought to be areas where dead bodies were placed before burial although there's debate within the archaeological community about what really went on in these enigmatic places

Earthworks, Coventry 26735_031

Second World War air raid shelter in Coventry. In this photograph traces of a Second World War air raid shelter can still be seen in Radford Road recreation ground, Coventry. Although partly demolished after the war, the filled-in remains of the interconnected trenches, that formed part of the shelter, are indicated by dark rectangles of lusher grass growth. These trenches also appear to survive as slight depressions in the ground. The park is not far from the city centre and close to the site where the Daimler motor works once stood. The remains of this communal shelter illustrate one of the ways the wartime population was protected from air raids, but is also a poignant reminder of the aerial bombardment that Coventry endured during the conflict
