Abstract:
An archaeological field evaluation was undertaken on the site of a proposed industrial development at Broomilees, near Melrose, Scottish Borders. Within the site a number of cropmarks were identified from oblique aerial photographs suggesting a number of linear and curvilinear features. A total of seven trenches were excavated to further investigate these cropmarks. The absence of any archaeological features across the identified linear cropmarks suggested that these were related to variations in the natural geology. The truncated remains of a cremation-burial pit containing prehistoric pottery was found to the north of the transcribed curvilinear cropmark suggesting that the cropmark may represent the remains of a circular ditch, truncated by modern agriculture and no longer visible as a sub-surface feature. The cremation-burial pit is likely to relate to this feature.
