EHG173 - Field survey - Mybster-Dounreay




Catherine Dagg


02 December 1999


Catherine Dagg was commissioned by Scottish Hydro-Electric to assess the potential impact of refurbishment works on the Mybster-Dounreay 33Kv overhead line on archaeological sites already recorded for this area. The aim was to propose actions by the contractors to minimise accidental damage to the sites and the surrounding areas where associated archaeological features might lie. A further aim was to decide whether an archaeological watching brief would be advisable or necessary during any refurbishment works. A visit to the area of was made on 1/12/1999. Attention was given only to those sections of the line where the proposed replacement of poles coincided with the presence of recorded archaeological features. <1>
