Does this LIDAR image contain Ridge and Furrow?

Post by chrisbham » Mon Jan 07, 2019 11:45 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm doing research of an area and on the LIDAR found this and not quite sure if it's ridge and furrow or just noise or natural or recent farming etc. Your opiniom is needed ::g

Cheers,
Chris

Some sort of scale would help. It looks like a combination of both. :D

Does look like it.
If you start finding horseshoes then that'll clinch it. ;)

It's about 300m x 200m sorry. Tried to crop it so it showed as large as possible when compressed a d shown at 100kb.

Yup,done four hours on a new ridge and furrow field.
Found eleven horseshoes.......plus a ton of shotties.
Still worth a stab though.
Previous time? Ridge and furrow dates back to immediate post Roman times.

But were those horseshoes Medieval or older? They are usually from more recent use. x;

There seems to be quite a variation in width but no doubt they were all R & F once. The usual giveaway for R & F is that they tend to follow on through field boundaries even after enclosure. And of course the characteristic 'S' shaped turns at the headlands. ::g

The older horseshoes are really great finds, I have a nice 17th century convex one and would be quite interested to see a pic of yours as I'm sure many others here would also. It's rare to see a good old horse shoe on here. Yep, anything at all could be there, best of luck. ::g

Gave the horseshoes to the farmer,not my thing.
Bound to find more though.
Interesting that there's a wide variety in signal responses on my Garrett's VDI,presumeably the quality and content varies considerably.
Plus the iron audio doesn't always hint at ferrous content.

Thanks for all the comments.

I was excited at the idea of ridge and Furrow to begin with but some research seems to suggest it's not really a good thing as most of the good stuff is really deep.

Perhaps with it being ploughed it will have flattened it out a bit and bought some stuff to the surface layer. That may also explain why it appears less distinct on the LIDAR due to ploughing flattening it out a bit. When I drive past the field it looks like any old stubble field with no sign of ridges at all.

I have had nice finds off ridge and furrow. Don't rule it out and listen to the hype about there's no finds. Yes it's deeper but you never know a feild until you get on there and try it. Good luck

There can be some good finds, but not from the few poor labourers who had nothing of note. Always worth checking it out as later losses will be there.
