Field Visit (4 May 2010)

NH 7626 5684 and NH 7638 5688 (centred on) A record was made on 4 May 2010 of an area of coast to the N of Fort George. This area had been subject to severe wave erosion leading to the exposure of a series of contexts of suspected archaeological significance. Most of the contexts were found to be natural in origin, with deposits of windblown sand and beach pebbles predominating. However, amongst the natural deposits were contexts with definite anthropogenic origins. The area’s close proximity to two middens and Fort George suggests that the possibility of further remains of archaeological significance existing in this area is high.
