The Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) and Archaeological Services
University of Durham (ASUD), at the request of the Northumberland National Park
Authority (NNPA), undertook a survey of Forest Enterprise‐owned land at Simonside,
Rothbury, Northumberland between October 1998 and November 1999.
The survey comprised an initial desktop study which assimilated the results of all
archaeological work undertaken in the area to date and examined available cartographic
records. These sources identified a series of possible sites within the study area, which
were examined in the course of the fieldwork programme.
The fieldwork comprised a survey of 4.3 sqkm of conifer plantation and moorland,
principally on the northern side of Simonside Hill. The survey drawings were generated
within a Computer Aided Draughting (CAD) system and were combined with Ordnance
Survey digital topographic detail supplied under licence by NNPA. A gazetteer of all
archaeological sites was compiled within a database format.
