RESULTS to discover if a Huddersfield landmark was the site of a pre-historic settlement are expected next week.
Archeologists using the latest technology began surveying Castle Hill on Monday.
It is believed the top of the hill, now the site of the Victoria Tower and car park, was an iron age settlement.
There is evidence Castle Hill was settled around 1300 and 1400AD but it is thought humans may have made the site home from as far back as 500BC.
The scientists have been using a magnetometer to search for iron objects and an electric earth resistance device to find masonry below the surface.
Results are expected by the end of the week, according to lead archeologist Sam Harrison.
If the survey turns up anything interesting archeological digs may take place.
Kirklees Council, which has helped organise the survey, plans to hold several public open days on the site later this summer.
