Conclusion from the Blackshouse Burn Environs Project
Blackshouse Burn Environs, Archaeological Remains
The results, in tandem with other recent work including the excavations on Biggar Common and that of the Upper Clyde Valley Landscape Project, have shown the enormous potential of the valley's landscape for yielding evidence of its early prehistoric occupation. The evidence so far indicates that activity may have taken place continuously or intermittently over several phases, spanning millennia, at the same sites. The fieldwork has demonstrated the great value of lithic scatters in the area as indicators of the presence of sub-surface, multi-phased archaeological remains.
