A programme of archaeological work was undertaken by Headland Archaeology in 2019 prior to the construction of a housing development at Milton of Leys, Inverness. The Site until recently comprised c.2ha of vacant land. This had been subject to a trial trench evaluation (see EHG5334) that established the presence of archaeological remains within the development area. Subsequently this area was subject to an archaeological strip map and record exercise. Three areas were targeted amounting to approximately 7000m². These were stripped of all overlying topsoil deposits and all features revealed were investigated. In total 13 pits, a shallow spread and 11 linear features were recorded along with a series of paleochannels. Most of the features were undated although a small prehistoric pottery assemblage was recovered from the site plus a single lithic piece. The limited information gathered from this site, along with evidence from previous excavations nearby, suggest low level Neolithic/Bronze age activity in this area. <1>
The map is limited to 3000 records per layer so not all records are being displayed for this area. Zoom in to see more.
