A survey and partial excavation of a series of Bronze Age and later structures exposed by the lowering of the water level in Camps Reservoir was carried out in 1992 and 1994. In the first campaign of work an enclosed cremation cemetery, a cairn and a burnt mound were excavated; associated artefacts and dating evidence placed these within the Early Bronze Age and Late Iron Age. In addition, a scatter of medieval potsherds and other items were retrieved from the area. During the second season a further Early Bronze Age cemetery was found and excavated, this was also dated, and associated artefacts were retrieved, including a unique pair of napkin rings. The conditions at Camps offered a rare opportunity to assess the effects of submersion and erosion of reservoir sites.
