Oct-Nov 2005

Description

A topographic survey was undertaken at the threatened post-medieval salt works at Brora by CFA Archaeology over a 10 day period between October and November 2005 as a part of a community archaeology project with Clyne Heritage Society associated with SCAPE trust and helped by NOSAS volunteers. The survey was carried out using a total station linked to a PenMap software on a laptop to provide a digital record of site specific components and a contour survey. The survey provided a contour plan on which to display the distribution of industrial sites and key areas where sites were eroding. These results provided a modern baseline with which to examine the geomorphical changes to the shoreline, sub-tidal archaeological remains and those within the hinterland. <1>
