Description

Excavations were carried out by S Farrell at Lochloy, Nairn, in 2003 in advance of a proposed housing development. This followed on from recommendations made from trial trenching carried out in 2001 (see EHG632) and was targeted on features seen during the evaluation. Five areas were opened up. Area 1 was c 1290m², Area 2 was c 520m², Area 3 was c 1330m², Area 4 was c 915m² and Area 5 was c 1110m². These revealed a mixture of features including prehistoric and modern pits, a possible post-medieval corn-drying kiln, a late Bronze Age crematiuon pot and features associated with agricultural improvement. <1> A report on the excavation of the cremation urn, post-excavation analysis and radiocarbon dating of samples from the site. <2>
