Abstract:
In the course of the watching brief it became apparent that a prehistoric settlement comprising four to five houses lay beneath the southern end of the site, and that this may have extended to the north and west, where the level of the soil strip was high enough not to reveal buried features, and to the south and east, which lay beyond the extent of the playing field area. In addition three structures were revealed that were identified as cairns of various types. All were associated with Bronze Age artefacts. Bearing in mind the potential damage to these important prehistoric features, and the resources required to undertake a full excavation, a decision was made by Mr Robert Dorrien-Smith to change the alignment and position of the pitch to allow the features to remain undamaged. The site was cleaned back to a level that did not disturb the prehistoric occupation layers further, photographed, and planned, before being reburied.
