Description

A watching brief was carried out by Highland Archaeology Services in 2007-8 on site clearance and excavations for foundations, services and drainage at a new house plot in Watten, Caithness. The site stripping and foundation trenches were done on 10-12 May 2007; the drainage and soakaway were completed in late February 2008. Stripping of the area of the house-base and driveway revealed a soil profile comprising about 30 cm of undifferentiated plough-soil overlying till containing very occasional cobbles. No archaeological finds or features were identified and no further work was recommended. <1>
