Description

An archaeological trial trenching evaluation was carried out by AOC Archaeology Grouop in 2017 at Rosskeen, Invergordon, in respect to the construction of new houses. Fourteen trenches were excavated across the site. Archaeological results included the remains of two stone walls as well as a number of pits and ditches and a stone lined culvert. The development area lies within the grounds of the old Invergordon Castle (now demolished) and the features identified may relate to the use of the area as part of the Castle grounds. <1>
