The Excavation of Bronze Age Roundhouses at Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire
Ringditch Roundhouses, Settlement
Oldmeldrum; Aberdeenshire. NGR: NJ 806 279
Excavations in summer 2005 to the north of Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire, revealed the remains of at least three Bronze Age ring-ditch roundhouses and associated features, together apparently forming elements of an area of open settlement. The excavations were conducted in advance of the construction of a new bypass road around the north of Oldmeldrum, related to new housing development. George Wimpey (East Scotland Ltd) funded the project.
