EHG98 - Walkover Survey - Dunbeath Estate



University of Glasgow


January 1984


Survey work on Dunbeath Estate was undertaken on the coastal strip south of Dunbeath Water during one week in March, 1984, by 27 students under the supervision of Dr. W. Hanson and Mr. E. Talbot; part of the south-western inland area was surveyed by a party of 10 students under the supervision of Dr. A. Morrison and Dr. M. Nieke between 22nd June and 4th July, 1985. The areas were walked systematically and any sites or likely archaeological features were marked with canes. The sites were located on the 1:10,000 map, given a Grid Reference, and in some cases photographed. Sketch plans were also made of some of the main settlement clusters. The weather conditions of March, 1984 and June/July, 1985 did not make the work of location and planning any easier, with mist and torrential rain. <1>
