Type Excavation


NT 245 630

A small-scale excavation was carried out in February 2002 in the nave and both the N and S aisles of Glencorse Old Kirk (NT26SW 17). The excavation was undertaken to reduce the existing ground level to allow a new floor to be inserted within the kirk, as part of an ongoing restoration of the kirk and kirkyard. A quantity of disarticulated human bone was recovered in the excavation and subsequently reburied. Several structures were recorded at the formation level of the new floor, and these relate to former features within the nave. These features were recorded in plan only and remain in situ beneath the new floor.
