Abstract:
A programme of archaeological investigative works was undertaken in respect of the proposed development on two parcels of land adjacent to Whitecrook, Glenluce, Dumfries and Galloway (NGR: NX 1718 5669). An evaluation was carried out from the 20th to 24th March 2006. The evaluation comprised twelve trenches covering 5% of the total area, supported by a metal detector survey. There were no known sites within the extraction area; however the northern edge of the site is defined by the A75(T) which runs on the line of the Old Military Road (NMRS NX15NE78) while there are the recorded sites of an enclosure (NMRS NX15NE75) and cultivation remains (NMRS NX15NE76) to the immediate south. Most trenches exhibited a common stratigraphic sequence with a topsoil up to 600mm in depth overlying either a fine pale yellow to orange sand or a compact orange-red sand. Occasional subsoil consisting of light brown/grey sandy gravel comprised of small-medium sized rounded stones or mottled grey/brown clay and black (humic) and grey sandy clay was also encountered. Numerous field drains indicate an attempt to improve drainage on the lower ground. Thirteen significant archaeological features, namely pits and postholes, were identified. These were concentrated in two groupings located on the western higher ground. A flint flake [01] and probable saddle quern and rubbing stone [02] were recovered from these features, giving a probable prehistoric date for the feature groups. Subsequent post determination mitigation detailed in OASIS project rathmell1-18824.
