EHG1525 - Controlled topsoil strip, Newhall Point, Balblair



Stuart Farrell


January 2007


An archaeological evaluation was conducted in connection with the proposed construction of a new house. The work comprised a controlled topsoil strip over an area of 216 square metres to a maximum depth of 350mm down to the underlying sand. The work revealed a number of rubble field drains and one tile drain with a further ditch or field drain, probably modern, to the western edge of the site. Most of the site was heavily disturbed by animal burrowing. <1>
