Further archaeology work in Daer Reservoir

21 March 2014

Daer Report 2014

Here is the final interim chapter on the Daer valley project, it covers the work done within the reservoir in 2013, and brings some sites up to date while others are new discoveries.

In July 2013 the water levels were again reduced within the Daer Reservoir (Pl 1) due to dry summer conditions, this has been the first opportunity to investigate the reservoir since 2005 when the water levels were last reduced.

Known sites and locations were re-visited to inspect for erosion damage and a search was made to detect previously unrecorded sites. Photographs of known sites were taken and these may be compared to records from previous work (Ward 2013).

The opportunity was taken to resume work which had previously been planned and to engage in further work on sites where erosion was demonstrated to have taken place in the intervening years.
