Abstract:
A program of archaeological works was conducted on the site of a proposed wind farm at Green Knowes, Glen Devon, Perthshire. Field survey was the first stage of a program of archaeological works. A detailed instrument survey of land below 400 m OD precisely located a series of field systems and confirmed their extent. A walkover survey of land above 400 m OD confirmed the location of an archaeological site identified in an EIA, a small quarry associated with mineral exploration and located a previously unknown small turf-built building. The second stage of works was based on the results of the instrument survey, 11 sections were excavated across a number of turf banks. In addition, eight 50m trial trenches were excavated, giving additional sections through banks and establishing that no sub-surface archaeological remains were present. The sections across the turf banks provided little additional information on their date, form and function. A soil survey, intended to detect any changes in the soil due to land use, concluded that natural topography and drainage were the principal factors controlling soil development with no evidence for changes due to agriculture. The turf-banked enclosures are interpreted as part of a system for the management of livestock and are assumed to be of medieval or post-medieval date.
