Description

An archaeological evaluation was conducted by Highland Heritage in 2008 prior to a housing development at Wester Inshes (Phase 3 IN/04/00934), Inverness for the builders Tulloch Homes of Inverness. The programme of work included documentary research, walk-over survey and trial trench excavation. Four trenches were mechanically excavated, totalling 805m². No archaeological features or artefacts were located. As a result of this evaluation it was considered probable that there were no important archaeological or historical features in the development area and it was concluded that no further archaeological work on this site was required. <1> Note: The details of the report must be used cautiously. Comparison with aerial photographs taken at the time show quite clearly that the trenches as excavated were not in the positions as shown on the trench plans and all dimensions are similarly incorrect, by an approximate factor of 50%.
