Speaker: Kirsty Dingwall, Headland Archaeology
The Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty project, or Aberdeen Bypass as it is commonly known, is a major transport infrastructure project in the north-east of Scotland. The construction of the new road around the western limits of the city of Aberdeen and its surrounds provided an excellent opportunity to examine the archaeology of the region, cutting across sections of the landscape which have rarely been investigated until now. As might be expected from such an extensive land take, a number of sites were excavated as part of a programme of works which began on site in 2012. Kirsty Dingwall directed the excavation of several of the sites, and this paper will present the highlights of the discoveries along the scheme.
