Abstract:
An Archaeological evaluation comprising of a Desk-based Assessment and Trial-Trenching Evaluation was carried out in advance of construction of a new house at Murphy's Croft, Bonar Bridge, Sutherland. There were no recorded features within the site itself, but extensive prehistoric and later sites have been noted nearby, including hut circles, cairns and field systems. The 1879 1st Edition O.S map records the site of a battle between the Scots and Danes in AD1031. A tracked back-acting mechanical excavator fitted with a 1.8m straight-edged ditching bucket cleared away turf and topsoil from the house site and part of the access road. The opportunity to record a hut-circle and clearance cairns out with the proposed site was taken using a DGPS survey unit. No features of archaeological interest were identified within the area subject to the watching brief.
