Archaeological Evaluation (15 March 2011)

NN 82300 65900 (centred on) An evaluation was undertaken on 15 March 2011 on an irregularly-shaped field immediately E of the House of Bruar and the scheduled ancient monument of Clach na-I-Obairt standing stone (SAM 1517). The evaluation consisted of the excavation of 21 targeted trial trenches, covering 6.96% of the development area. No significant archaeology was encountered across the development area, but prehistoric remains were revealed just E of the site. These consisted of a series of negative cut features. The features were sampled and a fire-cracked stone and fragments of Bronze Age Beaker pottery recovered.
