2005 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

In addition to undertaking a number of flights designed to record a broad range of sites of both archaeological and architectural interest, aerial survey in 2005 continued to redress the imbalance in the RCAHMS aerial photograph collection by carrying out further work in the north and west. Two sorties were also undertaken to support the RCAHMS ground survey of the Castlelaw and Dreghorn Training Area. The RCAHMS annual programme of prospection for plough-levelled sites visible as cropmarks continues to record previously unknown sites, even in relatively well-worked parts of the country. The fort to the south-south-east of Ceres in Fife was discovered on 9 August 2005 and has four lines of enclosure, the innermost of which may be a palisade.
