An archaeological watching brief was carried out by AOC Archaeology Group during ground investigations at the site of the proposed new Inverness Prison, Eastfield Way Inverness. Archaeological monitoring was required due to previous evaluations revealing multi-phase prehistoric settlement within the development area. Fieldwork was carried out on 7th-9th August 2018, where exploratory trenches for the water pipes were excavated and on 22nd-23rd August 2018, where ten soakaway pits were excavated. No archaeological features were observed during ground investigations. It was recommended that an archaeological watching brief be carried out during site clearance due to the significant prehistoric archaeological features and finds uncovered previously on the site. <1>
