EHG3838 - DBA and walkover survey - Killundine Estate, Morvern



West Coast Archaeological Services


Dec 2011


West Coast Archaeological Services carried out an archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey between 16 December and 17 December 2011 on behalf of Scottish Woodlands and Killundine Estate, on the Morvern peninsula in advance of a woodland establishment scheme. The work was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected within the areas outlined for planting and regeneration and in order to inform recommendations for the protection and management of any sites recovered. The survey identified thirty-eight new archaeological sites including shielings, townships, pens and turf and stone dykes. Most of these were associated with known postmedieval settlements. Mitigation measures were proposed to safeguard the sites during the establishment of the woodland scheme. <1>
