Description

An archaeological watching brief carried out at Alness Academy, Alness, in advance of the construction of a new school building and associated infrastructure. The works form part of a larger overall development. The development site is situated within close proximity to known significant prehistoric archaeology and has potential for the survival of sub-surface archaeological deposits. The watching brief was carried out intermittently between 22nd June 2018 – 31st July 2018. Approximately 6000m2 was stripped of topsoil. Three pits recorded during the watching brief probably relate to modern landscaping or may be natural in origin. <1>
