Name:Geophysical survey - Chapel Hill, Ballachly, Dunbeath
Organisation:University of Nottingham
Date:July 2007

Description

A geophysical survey was carried out by the University of Nottingham on the site of a supposed early Christian monatery at Chapel Hill, Ballachly near Dunbeath in 2007. This went over some of the same area as previous surveys (see EHG2884 & EHG2926), where there was some ambiguity, using both resistivity and gradiometry. Limited trial trenching was subsequently carried out to test the survey results (see EHG2975). <1>
