Welcome to YCCCART NEWS & EVENTS Report on a manual survey at Banwell using an electronic, hydrostatic level (NivComp) revealed that some surface features appeared to correlate with the previous resistivity results.  Open Report December 2016 Newsletter now available under publications.  Open Newsletter Report on recording of an ox-house and its surrounding earthworks, at Claverham Court Farm. The re-use of a post-medieval roof, and extraordinary details of the floor makes this more than an ordinary agricultural building.  Open Report Report on resisistivity, gradiometry and  Nivcomp terrain surveys at Locking Castle which confirmed and enhanced previous surveys and revealed the structures on the motte for the first time.  Open Report Report on a trial excavation and other unpublished records relating to Wemberham, Yatton, discovered in the Keith Gardner archive.  Open Report more> Surveying with NivComp (Electronic Hydrostatic Level) Since 2010, YCCCART has been using a NivComp, electronic, hydrostatic level to provide data for a software programme, Surfer 10 (kindly supplied by Golden Software Ltd, USA), to produce contour and 3D images of surface features.  The technique is simple to use and we are thrilled with the results.  We think this novel approach could be valuable to other archaeological groups carrying out similar surveys.   If you are interested please contact us for further information.
