Excavations at Coul Brae, Mosstodloch, Moray, revealed the remains of a multi-period site including two Early Neolithic pits containing large quantities of Carinated Bowl in the modified ‘North-East Style’, lithics, a broken saddle quern and charred oak. To the south of these features lay the remains of an Early to Middle Iron Age ring-ditch house. This contained few artefacts other than a saddle quern. Two other Iron Age features, one a possible bowl hearth and another pit containing burnt antler remains, were also excavated. An Early Historic cannel coal bangle was recovered from one of the Neolithic pits, and carbonised remains from another pit returned 1st Millennium AD dates. The excavations were conducted in advance of the proposed Fochabers to Mosstodloch bypass.
