Type Trial Trench


Three trial trenches across three cropmarks by I Keillar and B Jones. Manuscripts from the Barri Jones collection.

No trace of this earthwork. Keillar (I Keillar, Secretary Elgin Soc) recently conducted a soil resistivity survey along the SW side published on OS 6" and trial trenches showed a shallow ditch no more than 2 1/2ft deep and 5ft wide in a hard pan close to the present surface, but he found nothing to prove it Roman. He is aware of Jessups observations, but has seen nothing personally.

Visited by OS (A A) 19 May 1971.
