A piece of pottery that may date from the 17th Century and the possible remains of a wartime cinema have been uncovered at a former parade ground.
The Parade is an open space in Fort William
Dr Tony Pollard, of Glasgow University, is leading the first archaeological investigation of the site in Fort William and its nearby ruined fort.
The finds were made on The Parade in the town, an area where Red Coat soldiers once marched.
Archaeologists believe they have also found the concrete floor of a cinema.
Dr Pollard hopes local people will come forward with their recollections of the World War II picture house which was housed in a Nissen hut.
Remains of a civilian settlement called Maryburgh also lie beneath the parade.
Two trenches have been dug at the site and another two at the town's military fort.
Dr Pollard, director of Glasgow's Centre of Battlefield Archaeology and a presenter of BBC's Two Men in a Trench, said the sites could give an insight into the social impact of an "occupying" force in Scotland.
The fort was built in 1654 on the orders of Oliver Cromwell's General Monck, but grew extensively during the 18th Century.
