EHG992 - Trial trenching - Sandown, Nairn



Glasgow University (GUARD)


Nov 2002


Desk-based assessment and fieldwork in November and December 2002 identified an agricultural landscape, together with associated farm buildings or crofts, probably of 19th-century date, but perhaps beginning in the late 18th century. A series of rectangular pits may also be of this date. Two lithics were discovered in one area of the site, but were not directly associated with any archaeological deposits. <1>
