Later prehistoric field system and houses at Canny Cleugh (Kirkwhelpington)
Between 2000 and 6000 years ago, during what archaeologists call the later prehistoric period, people cleared an area of land here for cultivation, creating at least five clearance cairns. Nearby, two ring banks may mark the location of stone round houses. A cross dyke, which is earlier than the ring banks runs nearby.
