EHG3701 - Watching brief - northern casemates, Fort George, Ardersier

Kirkdale Archaeology

Date

Dec 1997

Description

A watching brief was undertaken in December 1997 by Kirkdale Archaeology during trenching work for an electricity cable outside the casemates in the northeast corner of the fort. The discovery of two soakaways situated relatively close to each other indicated that they were probably constructed at different times, although their close similarity in construction indicated a relationship - quite probably that they were both of military design. A drain running from one casemate may once have been a more common feature. <9> No further information.
