Type Watching Brief


On 15th May 2012 Alder Archaeology undertook a watching brief (Alder code DE01) on the site of excavations required for a buried low voltage cable and associated new 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 for finds with a metal detector. A fragment of a medieval spur and some pieces of leather were recovered from the excavation for the stay pit. Apart from the spur, nothing of archaeological significance was found during the watching brief. The work was fully funded by Scottish and Southern Energy.
