Abstract:
Headland Archaeology undertook a metal-detector survey on the Hill of Muchalls Battlefield (Site 411) as part of a programme of archaeological non-invasive investigations to facilitate the construction of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and associated schemes (AWPR). The site surveyed was located on the Fastlink section of the AWPR. The Hill of Muchalls battlefield was the site of a skirmish between Covenanting and Royalist armies in June 1639. The approximate area of the battlefield is shown on Roy's Military Survey of Scotland (Illus 2). Part of this area transects the road corridor. A metal-detecting survey of this area revealed four potentially 17th century finds, two of which have military connections. Though none in themselves are definitive proof of the Battle of Muchalls, all were clustered in the same general area (Illus 10). Other finds relate to agricultural use of the fields in the 19th and 20th centuries.
