EHG3391 - Beechwood Farm, Inverness: Geophysical Survey

Technique(s)

Organisation

Date

July 2010

Description

A geophysical survey was conducted in advance of proposed development at Beechwood Farm, Inverness. The works comprised detailed geomagnetic surveys of available areas. The works were commissioned by AOC Archaeology Group and conducted by Archaeological Services Durham University. A few disparate and very weak anomalies in Areas 2a, 2b, 2c and 2d could possibly reflect the remains of soil-filled features such as ditches. Some intense anomalies could possibly reflect burnt materials, though no specific anomalies have been identified as probable former burnt mounds. Other anomalies detected almost certainly reflect traces of former ridge and furrow cultivation, a more recent plough regime, boreholes, existing services and associated inspection chambers. <1>
