I created this animation as it is difficult to imagine or visualise the scale and extent of the Anglo Saxon buildings on the Ad Gefrin site. Using an adaptation of Brian Hope-Taylor's original excavation drawings and the 2006 Gefrin Trust survey image, combined with Google Earth topology, we are finally able to see the building footprints in relation to the modern landscape.
The 2006 survey image shows details and hints of buildings to the south of the Akeld to Kirknewton road (including the Yeavering henge).
It is also worth noting that at least two buildings recorded by Hope-Taylor have since been lost to the quarry which once occupied the south western area of the site.
