Watching Brief (5 May 2011 - 26 May 2011)

19500 62900. The archaeological monitoring work, prior to improvements within the grounds of Knock Castle, indicated that no significant archaeological features were disturbed by the development works and this would seem to suggest that the development area in general has low potential for the recovered of significant archaeological material. Those areas which were excavated prior to the commencement of archaeological monitoring can now be said to be free or significant archaeological material.
