In October 2005, Alba Archaeology Ltd was commissioned to undertake a watching brief on the site of a proposed housing development. Topsoil stripping had commenced on the site without implementing the required archaeological evaluation. Only a thin layer of topsoil had been removed revealing a deposit of wind blown sand. This was carefully stripped away under archaeological supervision, revealing thin layers of shell mixed with a fine, light sand - apparently a natural deposit. No archaeological features were observed. <1>
