Description

A watching brief was conducted by Ross and Cromarty Archaeological Services in 2014 on behalf of The Highland Council during the ground investigations for the Torvean Sports Hub. Topsoil clearance of fifteen test pits was conducted under the guidance of an archaeologist. This was carried out with the use of a smooth-bladed bucket on a mechanical excavator down to the first archaeological horizon or subsoil15 . Two of the test pits (2 and 6) were hand dug: Test Pit 2 to allow for boundary dyke Site 9 to be evaluated and Test Pit 6 to allow for boundary dyke Site 12 to be evaluated, both of which had been recorded during the 2013 walkover survey (see EHG). There were no other features of archaeological interest uncovered in the test pits. <1>
