A watching brief on geotechnical test pits was undertaken by Highland Archaeology Services in 2021 in advance of the development of the new Culloden Academy, adjacent to the current Culloden Academy, Highland. This work was carried out in an area noted to contain a possible enclosure identified in crop marks. The New Culloden Academy is to be constructed in an area just out with the designated battlefield at Culloden, as well as the designed landscape of Culloden House. As such these works were designed to inform the pre-application design stage process of the New Academy and may impact both the design and final mitigation works to be proposed. No significant archaeological features or material was uncovered during monitoring of the GI Works. Depths of topsoil down to natural were taken and recordings were taken digitally with photographs and measurements. <1>
See EHG5693 for the results of the subsequent trial trenching at the site.
