'Excavations at the Cursus Monument of Aston upon Trent, Derbyshire' in Midlands Prehistory, ed. A Gibson
Gibson, A & Loveday, R
Small scale excavations undertaken at the Aston Cursus monument at a point where the cursus ditch appeared to be aligned upon and intersected a ring-ditch. The excavations were designed to test the stratigraphy between the two monuments, retreive dating material and assess the effect of modern ploughing on the archaeological deposits. The primacy of the ring ditch was confrimed, though relative and absolute dating material was scarce.
