Robin Hood's Thyng

Topographical and magnetometry surveys are being completed today at a site in Sherwood Forest which a 200 year old document identified several years ago to be the ancient Thyng assembly site known as Thynghowe. References to Thynghowe go back to the 1200s in Nottinghamshire but its location was uncertain. The site is crowned on Hanger Hill by three standing stones, and may also be a bronze age burial site. The survey is a first step to doing archaeology work on the site, so it should be interesting to watch.

I can only imagine the fun re-enactor living near by a site like this could have.
