Tyne and Wear HER(1417): Walker, Stotts House, plough-marks beneath the mound - Details
Walker, Stotts House, plough-marks beneath the mound
Agriculture and Subsistence
When Jobey dug the surviving mound at Stotts House in 1964 he found beneath it plough-marks. These were the earliest evidence for human activity on the site and, because they predated the military way associated with Hadrian's Wall, he concluded they were either prehistoric or Roman.
