Title Whitby Cliff, North Yorkshire : Report on Geophysical Survey, June 2007
Summary Magnetometer and earth resistance surveys were conducted in a field on headland of Whitby’s eroding East Cliff where excavations in 2001 had demonstrated the presence of a complex archaeological sequence. The results of the magnetometer survey indicated areas of enhancement and some strong pit type anomalies that might be evidence for settlement. However, neither technique recorded a response to either the known Iron Age round house or any further similar structures.
