Oxford Archaeology North was commissioned by Dick Capel, of East Cumbria Countryside
Project, to undertake an archaeological study of Nine Standards, Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria
(NY 8247 0652); these are a series of large dry-stone constructed pillar cairns on a subsidiary
summit of Nine Standards Rigg. The documentary study and a site inspection were undertaken
from August to November 2004. The report will inform a planning application to reconstruct
the cairns which constitute the Nine Standards, and which are Grade II Listed Buildings.
The desk-based assessment included visits to the Cumbria County Record Offices in Kendal
and Carlisle, North Yorkshire Record Office in Northallerton, and libraries in Kirkby Stephen
and Kendal, as well as the consultation of Carlisle Library, Cumbria, and North Yorkshire
Sites and Monuments Record, local historians, and libraries. A site visit was also conducted.
