Organisation

Wordsworth Archaeological Services

Date

1997

Description

In advance of the construction of the proposed new access road to Dalcross Airport, trenches were cut by Wordsworth Archaeological Services in 1997 across several boundary banks in Tornagrain Wood, Petty. The features had been identified during a walkover survey the previous year (see EHG117). No bedding stones were evident and the height of the banks suggested these were topped by hedges or some form of timber fence. <1> No report currently available.
