Activities

Trial Trench (April 2011)

NC 4451 0090 A desk-based assessment and trial trenching evaluation were undertaken in April 2011 at Doune. The work aimed to establish the nature of a flat topped mound that could be affected by the construction of a house. An excavation was undertaken of a single trench, measuring c20 x 3m, which had been positioned to cover both edges of the mound. The top of a quarry face created in the 1990s was also investigated. The partial remains of a stone cup were recovered from an unsecure context. It has been recommended that the feature should be fully excavated prior to the start of development and that a search should also be undertaken for further pieces of the stone bowl.
