EHG4833 - Archaeological Evaluation - A830 Polnish



CFA Archaeology Ltd


December 1995


This report presents the results of an archaeological evaluation which was carried out by the Centre for Field Archaeology during December 1995. The evaluation was commissioned by Historic Scotland on behalf of the Roads Directorate of the Scottish Office Industry Department (SOID) in advance of the proposed improvements to the A830 between Polnish Bridge and Loch Nan Uamh. Sources, including the National Monuments Record of Scotland, were consulted beforehand. The road corridor was then walked and surveyed to locate any previously unidentified archaeological remains. The characteristic steep slopes and rocky terrain meant that the potential for feature identification was limited. Excavation work started on 6th December 1995. A total of c.619m^2 (16 trenches) were topsoiled using a JCB excavator. Coring was also attempted in the area midway between the Roman Catholic chapel and Polish railway cottage, as well as to the west of Arnipol. <1>
