A monitored topsoil strip was conducted by Headland Archaeology in 2007 in advance of the construction of a flow control and infiltration basin at Lochardil Burn, Inverness. The ground was under rough grassland adjacent to the Southern Distributor road and lay immediately north of Culduthel Farm, where several large-scale excavations had taken place on significant prehistoric remains. Sixteen features were noted in the development area; all were shallow plough-truncated pits, likely to be of prehistoric date and associated with the settlement activity at Culduthel to the south. The report recommended that further analysis and reporting on the above remains be carried out in conjunction with those associated with the site to the south (Culduthel Phase 7 and 8). <1> <2>
The excavation assemblage from the work was submitted to Treasure Trove (TT 84/12) and allocated to Inverness Museum. <3>
