Abstract:
Headland Archaeology Ltd was commissioned by FM Developments to conduct an archaeological evaluation at a proposed housing development at Southern View, Marykirk, Aberdeenshire. Prehistoric activity north of the proposed development is suspected because of aerial photography. Given that this activity took place within 500m of the proposed development and that Marykirk is known to have been in existence by the middle ages the potential for archaeological remains was seen as high. A brief for an initial phase of evaluation was obtained from Aberdeenshire Council Archaeology Service (who advise the planning authority). The evaluation sought to confirm the presence/absence of any archaeological deposits or features within the development area and provide information on the character, extent, date and quality of those remains. To this end, ten trial trenches were placed at random across the site, giving good coverage to accessible areas, and representing 10% of the proposed development. The excavation revealed deep plough soils above natural sandy gravel. No significant archaeological features or finds were uncovered during the works.
