Abstract:
A desk-based assessment and walkover survey was conducted to assess the potential impacts upon the Archaeology and Cultural Heritage resulting from the insertion of a stretch of pipeline E-W from the western end of Leurbost to the western end of Crossbost (NB 3620 2567 - NB 3916 2454) and N-S from the eastern end of Leurbost to Bheinn a' Chladdich Mhoir (NB 3827 2475 - NB 3850 2280). Thirty-nine sites were identified within 100m of the proposed route of the new pipeline from a desk-based assessment and walkover survey. Eighteen of these sites were identified as pre-dating the first edition Ordnance Survey map and are associated with pre-clearance land-use, potentially being occupied from as far back as the early medieval period. A walkover survey of the proposed development recorded seventeen additional sites and verified the surviving remains of nine of the sites identified on the first edition Ordnance Survey map. The presence of so many sites within the study area suggests that there is a high potential for archaeological remains to occur ranging from the early medieval period to the post medieval period. To mitigate against any potential damage to these sites, it was suggested that a system of micrositing should take place prior to any groundbreaking works being carried out. and that archaeological monitoring is carried out wherever groundbreaking works are undertaken.
