The upland surveys undertaken by the Group and by the writer in a commercial capacity for pre-aforestation surveys, principally in The Clyde and Tweed Valleys but also in numerous other locations of the Southern Uplands of Scotland, has produced a large corpus of data from previously un-recorded sites. This breaks into two main categories or periods; the Bronze Age and the Post Medieval.
Perhaps the most fascinating sites to have been discovered have been the Wildshaw Burn Stone Circle and Blackmount Eclosed Cremation Cemetery. At each of these sites it is possible to witness the summer and winter solstices with both sunrise and sunset alignments across the sites to prominent horizon features. The Group lack the astronomical knowledge to present the facts of these incredible sites, although all the data has been recorded on both film and video.
