Abstract:
Archaeological monitoring was undertaken of the machine cleaning of a pre-stripped area as part of a planning application for the proposed development of a single house plot on land northeast of Old Toll, Kirkurd . The proposed development site falls within an area recorded as the location of a large Roman Temporary Camp in the Scottish Borders SMR (405005203). In addition, a number of prehistoric sites have been recorded in the immediate vicinity. An area 23m by 10m was stripped of the remaining topsoil and the underlying subsoil scraped to expose any surviving archaeological features. The topsoil comprised 0.2-0.4m of dark brown clayey silt, with occasional stone inclusions. Underlying that was undisturbed geological deposits comprising reddish brown gravels, boulder clay and fractured sandstone- interpreted as glaciofluvial deposits. No features or artefacts of archaeological significance were revealed during the programme of works. This does not appear to be a result of the partial stripping of the site prior to archaeological monitoring. It seems that if the site previously lay within a Roman temporary camp then no trace of this survived prior to any development works.
