Geophysical Survey (27 September 2017 - 28 September 2017)

AOC Archaeology Group was commissioned by Jacobs UK Limited, on behalf of Transport Scotland with Historic Environment Scotland as the Curator, to undertake an archaeological geophysical survey (Magnetometer and Earth Resistance) to investigate the potential for buried archaeological remains along the proposed A9 Dualling Southern Section, Scotland.

Two parcels of land were outlined for geophysical survey, covering an area of approximately 0.43 hectares. A magnetometer and earth resistivity survey were undertaken over land at Kindallachan cairn (centred at NN 9948 4973) and a magnetometer survey was undertaken on land at Kindallachan standing stone (centred at NN 9938 4994).

The results of the gradiometer survey, conducted between 27th and 28th September, 2017, located a linear anomaly, possibly of archaeological origin, in the location of the Kindallachan cairn. This anomaly could represent part of the cairn itself or relate to a possible prehistoric kerb around the cairn. Further linear trends were identified across the data for both parcels that are more discrete and tentative and have an unclear origin.

Magnetic disturbance and ferrous anomalies were also identified.

The results of the earth resistance survey positively identified the western extents of the Kindallachan cairn, displaying a sub-circular area of high resistance. Further areas of low resistance were identified which could relate to archaeology but could also relate to vegetation or geological changes in the ground surrounding the cairn.
