Archaeology Notes

NM32SW 42 314 233

NM 314 233 A watching brief was conducted on 24-6 January 2007 to monitor digging of all areas to be disturbed

by the development of a house site. The proposed house site lay on an historical pilgrimage route to Iona, and other areas of archaeological significance were close by. (NM 32SW1- NM 32SW11-NM 32SW13) Three trenches denoting the areas for drainage/septic tank usage, drive-way and house area were stripped of topsoil, and any area of archaeological interest was hand cleaned and investigated by trowel. One archaeological feature was identified, a 0.30m wide x 5.20m long field drain, containing later 19th- and early 20th-century pottery. No other archaeological features were uncovered.
