A 7% archaeological evaluation was carried out between December 19th and December 22nd , 2016, on a c.1.6Ha parcel of land located on the south side of Inverness. Evidence of heavily truncated ridge and furrow agriculture was evident, while one heavily truncated pit or post-hole base yielded charcoal fragments and was sampled and recorded. A 100% watching brief was carried out from 19-25th January 2017 and three further features were recorded, the bases of two post-holes and the base of a pit or hearth filled with charcoal. One post-hole base contained a flint blade. <1>
The excavation assemblage was submitted to Treasure Trove (TT 191/18) and allocated to Inverness Museum. <2>
