Archaeology Notes

NO20SE 43 284 029.

Immediately to the W of the A92 and crossing the ring cairn (NO20SE 20) is a mill lade. Quantities of 13th century pottery and metalwork were found in part of it, next to the remains, indicated by stone walls and iron nails, of a sluice mechanism. To the E of the A92 and to the S of stone circle NO20SE 4, the sampling conducted close to the line of the proposed re-alignment of the road revealed the remains of structures apparently of the 13th century.
