Description

An archaeological watching brief was carried out by Highland Archaeology Services in 2010-11 during excavations for cable undergrounding works associated with the construction of a new electricity substation and associated infrastructure at Knocknagael, Inverness. The stripped line was split into 6 areas and varied in width from about 8m to about 15m. Although there was some evidence of manuring as might be expected, a number of small pits did not provide any datable evidence and at least some of these are likely to be the result of scrub clearance in the post-medieval period. No significant archaeology was found. <1>
