An archaeological watching brief was carried out by Highland Archaeology Services at Culloden Park as part of ground investigation works. Ten test pits, some for the location of boreholes, were excavated and recorded. Only a few features of archaeological significance were discovered. In trial pits TP7, TP8 and TP5 there appears to be a buried soil horizon below the initial subsoil containing fragments of tile drains. This may be a buried land surface from when the park was landscaped. A few modern artefacts were also recovered from the topsoil. <1>
