The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU), at the request of Capsticks
(Landscape Design Consultants) and Lowther Estates, undertook a detailed survey of three
sites in Lowther Park, centred on NY 528234. These sites varied considerably in both period
and character; the earliest was an enclosed settlement of Romano-British type (Site 57). The
other sites were the Lowther medieval settlement (Sites 38 and 41), which was associated
with the Castlesteads defensive ringwork (Site 39), and finally the boundaries of the former
deer park were surveyed. The work was undertaken in accordance with a brief prepared by the
Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) and followed on from an identification
survey of the park, undertaken by LUAU. The detail survey fieldwork took place over a 5 day
period between 2nd and 6th December 1996.
