Abstract:
Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA) were commissioned to undertake an intrusive archaeological evaluation on land near Rennibister Farm, Firth, Orkney. The archaeological work was undertaken in order to investigate two parallel geophysical anomalies identified in a recent survey of the area. This work was undertaken in advance of a proposed development consisting of the erection of a wind turbine and associated access track. The archaeological work has been undertaken as a condition of planning consent. A single, 50m long by 1.5m wide evaluation trench (Trench 1) was machine excavated across the geophysical anomalies to investigate this feature. No significant archaeological features were found. A possible furrow base was found in the NNW end of the trench, which is of low archaeological significance. The cause of the two parallel geophysical anomalies was not conclusively identified, but they could have derived from the underlying geology, or alternatively from archaeological features that have been completely truncated away by ploughing.
