Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken on a greenfield site in advance of proposed new housing on the N side of Terregles Road, Barnhill, Dumfries, centred on NGR NX 95077 76819. The requirement was to evaluate 5% of the available area of 22,000m². The work (site code DM08) was undertaken during the period 13th - 15th November 2012. Special attention was paid to assessing two oval cropmarks, revealed on aerial photographs and located in the NW and NE quadrants of the site. The crop marks, Dumfries and Galloway Historic Environment Record numbers MDG25350 and MDG25822, were considered to be evidence of prehistoric occupation in the form of enclosures. Evaluation trenches across the cropmarks failed to find any structural evidence in the form of cut features relating to the enclosures. Such evidence may have been removed by deep ploughing. Evidence of 19th-20th century cultivation was found in the form of the bases of cultivation slots with dark fills and some oval cuts bottoming into the natural silty clay deposits. Occasional 19th pottery sherds dated some of the cultivation slots. Nothing of archaeological significance requiring further work was identified on the site.
