Overview

ring ditch


Quick Reference

[Co]

A bedrock cut ditch or trench of circular or penannular plan, usually identified through aerial photography either as soil marks or cropmarks. When excavated, ring ditches are usually found to be the ploughed‐out remains of a round barrow where the barrow mound has completly disappeared, leaving only the infilled former quarry ditch.
