Abstract:
Archaeological monitoring works were undertaken on land at Banks Hill, Dundrennan, Kirkcudbrightshire as a condition of the issued planning consent. The works were required as the proposed works were located in close proximity to a number of cup and ring marked rocks. The monitoring works mainly revealed a mid to light brown fairly fine silty topsoil and either a pale yellow / orange clay containing small stones or a grey / orange clay subsoil. Large sub-angular stones and areas of shattered bedrock were visible within the subsoil and bedrock was visible close to the surface in places. A small oval pit with a compacted ashy fill was uncovered during the excavations for the service track. The pit contained small fragments of charcoal and burnt bone, which was identified as animal. Radiocarbon dating undertaken on the burnt bone dated the pit to the late Bronze Age. It is therefore be prudently suggested that the pit is contemporary with the cup and ring marks located within close proximity.
