Type Watching Brief


A watching brief was carried out on 30th September 1997 by Kirkdale Archaeology while two test pits were excavated in the vicinity of Meigle Museum. The exercise was intended to establish the nature and extent of archaeological deposits in the area at the S of the graveyard, where it meets the N wall of the museum, in advance of the erection of an extension to the building.

No archaeological features likely to be disturbed by the extension works were revealed, as the site was seen to be characterised by substantial depths of levelling and otherwise later materials.

A full graphic and photographic record was made, and no finds were removed from the site.
