Archaeology Notes

NO02NE 41 0570 2595

In December 1979 the stripping of topsoil at the Forestry Commission gravel quarry in Methven Wood revealed a length of palisade trench which was subsequently excavated. A two-phase entrance structure was noted and the only find was a sherd of coarse ware pottery, now in Perth Museum, together with a copy of the archive (Accession no: 1983.548; 1983-549). A C14 assessment for carbon samples from the trench is forthcoming.

A G Reid 1984; J Sherriff 1980.
