Abstract:
A watching brief was undertaken by Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA) on the groundworks associated with the further development of the Spurness, Sanday Wind Farm. The watching brief uncovered a concentration of archaeological features to the north of the Turbine 5 access road, adjacent to Loth Road. The features uncovered indicate a probable prehistoric settlement in this area, and consist of two unexcavated pits and postholes, a shell midden and boundary wall, a stone surface and boundary wall, and a stone wall. However, since the groundworks would not impact upon these features, they were recorded, sealed, and left in-situ.
