Domestic and Industrial activities have created

Evidence of industrial, agricultural and domestic archaeology, dating from up to 4, 000 years ago has been found at the site of the Dyce Park and Choose and Dyce Drive link road site.

The finds include 4, 000-year-old pottery from the early Bronze Age, the remains of timber roundhouses, and evidence of Iron Age smithing and domestic life. The site has real regional significance and adds considerably to a wider understanding of early habitation in the area.

Aberdeen City Council employed AECOM and Headland Archaeology to carry out an archaeological investigation ahead of construction work for the 999 space Dyce Park and Choose site and the Dyce Drive link road getting under way.

The team has discovered evidence of industrial, agricultural and domestic activity dating from the early Bronze Age (2300BC) through to the 1800s.

The work has been carried out on a relatively undisturbed piece of ground in an area where finds from prehistory onwards have been made in the past. For that reason, a condition was attached to the planning permission for the site requiring archaeological work to be carried out prior to development.

This dig was carried out because the initial archaeological evaluation revealed a range of archaeological features which required further examination.

Archaeologist Steve Thomson said: “Domestic occupation in the area has been found in the form of the remains of timber constructed roundhouses, with hearths and remnants of compacted floor and activity surfaces, which so far seem to indicate prolonged occupation on the same site, with phases of rebuilding occurring.

“The site appears to have been significant over a 2, 000 year period with Iron Age occupation and evidence of smithing and domestic life. Partial quern stones, used for grinding cereal crops, have been found along with metal working residues and puts containing probable fire rakings of meals and every day life.”

Medieval agricultural activity has also been discovered and later ridge and furrow field systems, with the remains of possible farm buildings evidenced on site.

Starting in the mid-1990s, investment in computers began to rise more rapidly than it had previously.

Because productivity growth in the computer industry was higher than in most industries, as its share of GDP rose, so did the weighted average productivity of the economy.
