Roman Town Cropmarks

Roman Town Cropmarks (Google Maps)
No Thumbnail
Lying in this field near Dorn in Moreton-in-Marsh in the UK are the cropmarks from a Roman settlement. The broad ditch that surrounded the Roman town of Dorn can be seen as a dark rectangular cropmark with rounded corners. The grid layout of the streets within the town can also be seen as cropmarks together with the Fosse Way.

The A429, which follows this section of the Fosse Way, diverts and the remains of the Fosse Way going through the field can also be clearly seen when the cropmarks show. The A429 connects to the Fosse Way, once again, and follows the same route of the Fosse Way to the south of the site.

When choosing the "Historical Imagery" feature on Google Earth the cropmarks can clearly be seen on the imagery from April 2005.
