Headland Archaeology undertook the archaeological evaluation of five fields (Phases J, K, L, N and P) to the S of Inverness during February and March 2006. The work followed a condition of planning consent for their development for housing. Trenches equivalent to a 5% sample of the area were excavated. Archaeological features were identified in Phase P and one feature was found in Phase N. Further work was undertaken in Phase P. The excavations revealed a variety of features presumed to date to the prehistoric period. The site probably contained a burnt mound, although only the central trough has survived later agricultural activities. The trough appeared to have been wood-lined and hearths lay adjacent. In addition, there were the truncated remains of numerous small pits or postholes that suggest some form of contemporary associated structure. <1>
