Type Watching Brief


Alder Archaeology undertook a watching brief on the site of excavations required for an underground low voltage cable and associated wooden pole and stay. The site was considered to have archaeological potential due to its close proximity to the 14th century Doune Castle and the nearby Roman Fort. Spoil from the excavation was scanned with a metal detector. Of interest was a fragment of a medieval spur and some fragments of leather found below topsoil in the excavation for the stay pit. Apart from the spur nothing of archaeological significance was found during the watching brief.
