Thornbrough Scar enclosure (Corbridge)
A cropmark enclosure was seen on aerial photographs in the 1960s. When it was excavated, in 1983, archaeologists found traces of at least six round houses as well as pottery and a quern. There was also a cobbled area and possible stone house walls. The settlement dates to the Roman period and was used by the native Britons until the second century AD.
