Pits, Lithic Material, Ditch, Linear Feature, Artefacts, Pottery, Cropmark
This report describes a number of pits and a linear feature close to the scheduled cropmark site at Farrochie. The remains of a shallow curvilinear ditch and eight pits were recovered in one area which produced evidence for possible Mesolithic and Neolithic activity. In another trench a number of truncated pits with no associated artefacts were recorded. There are notes on: `The chipped stone' by B Finlayson (20); `Palaeoenvironmental results' by C Clarke (20--1); and `The Neolithic pottery sherds' by T G Cowie (22--4).
