This report details the findings of an archaeological watching brief carried out in advance of the construction of a new Chill Facility as part of the wider development of Inverness Airport Business Park, located on the south side of Inverness Airport. The watching brief was required due to the archaeological potential of the site highlighted in the desk-based assessment and evaluation carried out in June 2017.
Fieldwork was carried out from 7th to 20th November 2017 during groundworks for the Chill Facility site where 25 archaeological features were identified. The majority of these consisted of pits, but there were also a number of linear features. Some of the pits were probably prehistoric, including a clay-lined hearth or fire-pit, while others may be the result of vegetation burning or post-medieval agricultural practices. <1>
