A geophysical survey was carried out in fields at Seafield West (Stoneyfield) by the Centre for Field Archaeology in 1996 in advance of the construction of a proposed business and retail park. Both resistivity and magnetometry techniques were used over an area of 13,768m² though not in all areas. Coverage was obtained in a series of 30 by 30m and 20 by 20m grids, arranged in grids across specific areas to provide a good overall spatial distribution. Areas of particular archaeological sensitivity which did not have good locational information were targeted to aid in the subsequent positioning of trial trenches. A number of anomalies were detected, particularly circular and linear features. <1>
