1992-07-07 00:00:00- 1992-08-14 00:00:00 Measured Survey RCHME: Mount Grace Priory Survey

Mount Grace Priory was surveyed as part of a RCHME project to record the
archaeological earthwork remains of the carthusian houses in England. The
site was surveyed by RCHME Keele during July and August 1992.

The survey was controlled using a Leica TC1610 theodolite with an integral
EDM and data-logger. The surveyed points were computed using
RCHME/Mathshop survey software outputting to a Calcomp GT 1042 wide bed plotter onto polyester film. The earthworks were surveyed into this
control schme using standard graphical methods with fibron tapes and an
optical square. The earthwoks were surveyed at a scale of 1:1000 while a
plan of the standing buildings and fountations was surveyed at 1:250.
Permanent survey station markers were placed on the site, details of which
may be found within the survey archive.

The site was recorded to RCHME level 3 and is held by the NMR.

North York Moors National Park NMP project was one component of a multi-disciplinary study, managed by Archaeological Research Services Ltd (ARS) in partnership with English Heritage and North York Moors National Park Authority.

The aim of the project was to undertake an assessment of the historic environment resource in the most vulnerable areas of the North York Moors National Park (NYMNP), driven by the mapping of archaeological features from aerial photographs as part of the National Mapping Programme (NMP) and assessment of existing HER and NMR records.

The aerial survey mapping project began on 14th June 2010 and was completed in May 2011. The project team, employed by Archaeological Research Services Ltd, were based in the English Heritage York office.

The air photo mapping element extended over 22 Ordnance survey 1:10,000 scale quarter sheets, focusing on an area of 458Km2 (8 part quarter sheets and 14 full quarter sheets). These comprised: SE 49 NE, SE 49 SE, SE 48 NE, SE 59 SW, SE 58 NW, SE 58 SW, SE 58 NE, SE 58 SE, NZ 81 SW, NZ 80 NW, NZ 80 SW, SE 89 NW, SE 89 SW, SE 88 NW, NZ 90 SW, NZ 99 SE, SE 99 NE, SE 99 SE, SE 98 NE, SE 98 SE, TA 09 SW AND TA 08 NW.

The aim and scope of the aerial photographic interpretation was to interpret and transcribe, at a nominal scale of 1:10,000 all levelled and upstanding archaeological features visible on air photographs dating from prehistory to the 20th Century. Air photographs were rectified with Aerial 5.29 using control derived from Ordnance Survey 1:2500 Landline data. Archaeological features were transcribed in AutoDesk Map 3D 2008 in the standard NMP layer system. The data was input into the AMIE database.
