Abstract:
Rathmell Archaeology was appointed by Patersons of Greenoakhill to conduct archaeological works in advance of the extension at Cowiehall Quarry, Easter Moss, Stirlingshire. An archaeolgical evaluation had been carried out by CFA Archaeologyin in 1998, the findings of which were used to infrom the planning process. The area of the study area is currently a green field site extending to 500m2. The works, carried out from 2nd July to the 3rd August 2007, involved the stripping and hand cleaning of an area 20m by 25m and the subsequent excavation of exposed archaeological features. These works proceeded on the recommendations of earlier investigations (Strachan 1998) The works revealed the remains of a souterrain and associated features. This was composed of the partial robbed out souterrain, two bi-partite pits, pits and postholes dispersed primarily over the eastern half of the site. A preliminary date in the 2nd century AD, has been put forward for the occupation of the site, with activity in the late to post medieval period pending further investigation. An amount of artefacts, consisting of pottery and lithic material, and ecofacts were retrieved. From these it would be hoped that a number of questions about the site might be answered, particularly concerning issues of dating, subsistence and economy.
