How to identity deer park and medieval demesne perimeters?

    Dia dhaoibh,

    basically I understand there are many medieval/ early modern deer parks and demesnes around the country that are rather poorly studied and documented. I wonder how would one recognise them in the field? I believe that they can occur as ditches but also as stone walls? How old can walled examples be?
