Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was conducted on topsoil stripping at Easter Glackton Farm, Gollanfield, Nairn to establish and record the nature and extent of any archaeology likely to be affected by a gravel quarry. The desk-based assessment found no archaeological features within the site itself, but there is a midden (NMRS NH85SW0018), a Crannog and possible log-boat (HSMR NH85SW0001-2) within the wider surrounding area. The initial walk-over survey discovered that the area had been subject to previous excavations, showing evidence of extensive levelling for agricultural purposes. It was then discovered that the owner of the farm had undertaken a major project in 2003 to remove the original undulating landscape to form an area of level ground. In excess of 57000 tonnes of topsoil and subsoil was removed, with Scottish Natural Heritage over-seeing the work. A site meeting with Highland County Council archaeologist Kirsty Cameron was held and it was decided that it was futile to continue the watching brief as the area could no longer be archaeologically viable.
