Abstract:
A programme of archaeological monitoring and excavation works were carried out between the 9th and 31st August 2006 observing grounding breaking work associated with the Phase 1 and part of Phase 2 development of Whitecrook Quarry, Glenluce, Dumfries and Galloway. The area of the quarry is currently a green field site extending to 7.2 ha (NGR NX 1718 5669). The monitoring works revealed substantial evidence of possible later prehistoric occupation, in the form of a palisade enclosure, a ring groove structure and numerous pits and postholes distributed across the site. A substantial amount of pottery and lithic artefacts were also recovered, from closed contexts and from unstratified scatters distributed across the extent of the site. From these works it is suggested that two distinct types of activity occurred on the site, namely domestic activities (represented by the roundhouse and associated features) and pastoral activities in the form of stock control (represented by the palisade enclosure and possible fence).
