Prehistoric Silsden

Following the completion of fieldwork on this Barratt and David Wilson Homes site in Silsden we are delighted to be able to share the results.  A Bronze Age double-ditched round barrow, Neolithic mortuary enclosure and an Iron Age pit alignment were all suggested by geophysical survey (although the pit alignment was thought to be a ditch interrupted by ridge & furrow).  The star find of the site was a collared urn from a pit within the barrow and this is going to the lab for controlled excavation.  Please keep an eye out for updates on what was inside!

Facebook and Keighley Online both have articles with further detail:
