Abstract:
A programme of archaeological investigative works was undertaken in respect of the proposed development at Eastlands Road, Rothesay, Isle of Bute, (NGR: NS 104 647). An evaluation was carried out from the 6th to 7th February 2007. The evaluation comprised seven trenches covering 7% of the available, undisturbed area. In addition areas which had previsouly suffered sever truncation were tested to ensure that this truncation would reasonably have removed any archaeology that may originally have been present. Most trenches exhibited common stratigraphy, with a thin dark brown clay silt topsoil, which was in general 50mm or less in depth, overlaying varying subsoil. Hillwash was evident in Trenches 1, 5, 7 and 13, especially those portions of trench on the eastern downslope of the site. There were eight various subsoils, the predominate two were [002] and [003], these were orange brown sandy clay or silty clay, respectively. The rest were variants of this, in colour and inclusions. The exceptions were [004], [006] and [008] which were red orange gravels. No significant archaeology was uncovered during the evaluation, though modern ceramic detritus was observed.
