Abstract:
Planning permission has been granted for the erection of an agricultural building at Bankhead Farm, Dalswinton, Dumfries (NGR NX 9340 8475), with a condition to undertake all groundworks for the construction of the building under permanent archaeological presence. The site lies within an area of high archaeological potential with two Roman forts positioned immediately to the north and west of the farm (SM 2560), and a Roman camp approximately 300m to the south of the farm (SM 4343). A Roman road may also run along the north-eastern edge of the site. Furthermore, to the immediate north-east of the site an undated enclosure, seen as a cropmark on aerial photographs, and to the south-east is a second cropmark indicating the site of a ploughed Bronze Age barrow. OA North was commissioned by Capita Symonds, on behalf of their client, to undertake a watching brief, over three days from 7th to 11th August 2008. The works involved complete topsoil strip, followed by the excavation of postholes. A possible field boundary, 1007, was recorded, but there was no dating evidence retrieved. The area was also heavily disturbed by recent activity, including modern services, carcass pits and silage dumps. A rubble trackway was observed across the southern end of the site. There were no other archaeological features, structures or deposits of significance seen during the watching brief, and no finds were recovered. The groundworks did not impact upon any features of archaeological value and, therefore, no further archaeological work is recommended.
