Archaeology Notes

NN81SE 46 8996 1046

NN 8996 1046 (centred on) An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by CFA Archaeology Ltd between 18th September and 13th October 2006 at Gleneagles West in advance of its development as a golf course complex. Two hundred and twenty-one trial trenches were excavated, amounting to 25,929m squared (c.5%), across the locations of the findspots of pre-historic artefacts (NN81SE3, NN81SE6), and an area of open moor land. Three roundhouses, a burnt mound and various pits, postholes and ditches were discovered. It is possible that some of the pits, postholes and ditches are also of prehistoric date.
