AOC Archaeology Group was commissioned by Jacobs U.K. Limited to undertake an archaeological geophysical (gradiometer) survey to investigate the potential for buried archaeological remains between Inverness and Nairn, Highland as part of the cultural heritage assessment works for the A96 Dualling Inverness to Nairn project.
The site includes eighteen parcels of land running between Inverness and Nairn, following the route of the A96 (NH 8020 5260).
A gradiometer survey was undertaken over approximately 85ha which detected anomalies representing features previously recorded on historic mapping, such as field boundaries. The results have also identified linear, curvilinear and rectilinear anomalies that possibly relate to former human activity. Across the survey area there are large areas of modern and geological disturbance and subsequently detailed interpretation is tentative. Modern features are also visible within the survey results, such as plough lines, land drains and buried utilities. <1>
The map is limited to 3000 records per layer so not all records are being displayed for this area. Zoom in to see more.
