An aerial  thermogram which overlaps with the image above. The thermal delineation is probably enhanced due to a 'drying' and relative warming immediately above archaeological features because of the greater density, and thermal capacity, compared with the surrounding soil following an earlier light shower of rain.

(eg note the break in the fence as a reference point)

There was no visible parching on the day.
