An archaeological field evaluation was carried out in 2014 by Rubicon Heritage Services at the rear of 92‐94 Academy Street in Inverness on behalf of Stuart Farrell for William Gray Construction Ltd. This was part of a planning condition to be undertaken in advance of demolition on the site (Planning ref: 13/03720/FUL). As the work was carried out pre‐demolition all available accessible space was investigated in order to maximise the percentage of the site sampled. The layout of the trial trenches was restricted to the open space at the rear of the main buildings as all other areas retained upstanding buildings and could not be investigated. Overall 93.9 m² of trench was excavated. All archaeological features identified contained artefacts consistent with a 19th or 20th century formation. No residual or in situ evidence was recovered for earlier activity on the site. It was concluded that any development of this site would be unlikely to encounter any significant archaeology. <1>
