Description

A topographic survey was carried out across the Scheduled Area of prehistoric remains at Ord. This landscape contains a number of archaeological sites, including Neolithic funerary monuments and remains of Bronze Age settlements and agriculture. Although the distribution of the major features was known the survey added a higher degree of accuracy and also a lot more detail to the entire area compared to previous surveys. The survey also identified several new features not previously recorded within the area. <1>
