Category Recording

Type Field Walking


In October 2010, North Pennines Archaeology Ltd was commissioned by Edwin Thompson Chartered Surveyors, to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment and walkover survey of Craig Hill, Langholm, Dumfries and Galloway (NGR NY 330 882).

The survey area is located within the vicinity of a number of features, including two Scheduled Ancient Monuments on Craig Hill and Little Hill, and prehistoric burnt mounds. There are also records of an old field bank adjacent to the road as well as the yet unconfirmed route of the Roman Road on the eastern slope of Craig Hill. In the 1980s the RCAHMS surveyed the area, however they were selective in what was recorded.

The archaeological walkover survey recorded 14 sites, 11 of which were identified from early cartographic sources, one site that was recorded during a 2007 archaeological walkover survey, and two previously unrecorded sites.
