Castle Menzies Cursus



Excavations in 1999 confirmed the existence of this cursus indicated by cropmarks. The main feature was an arc of 16 post-pits. To the W of this arc, were three parallel lines of post-holes. The northern line had over 120 post-holes ending just to the E of West Lodge. At this point it turned south and continued for an unknown distance. The two other lines of post-holes ran parallel to the northern line, 15m and 35m to the south. The site has now been destroyed by gravel quarrying. Posted by BrigantesNation
