A staged archaeological project involving preliminary documentary research, walkover survey was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2017 to evaluate the area of a proposed extension (Extension Phases 5 to 9) to the Pat Munro Limited quarry at Dornoch Bridge, Evelix, Dornoch. The project was designed to establish the archaeological potential of the proposed quarry extension areas. The desk-based assessment identified sites of potential archaeological significance within or adjacent to the study site including a hengiform enclosure, the purported burial place of a Viking leader, ‘Sigurd the Powerful’, a possible ring-ditch and a hut circle. The walkover survey confirmed the earthworks of the hengiform enclosure but failed to identify any evidence of either the ring ditch or hut circle. <1>
Trial trenching was subsequently carried out - see EHG5372.
