NT27NE 1555 267 765

See also NT27NE 10.

An evaluation in November 2004 revealed part of the course of the Leith Citadel (NT27NE 10) ditch and revetment wall. Evidence of later stone robbing from the revetment wall was recorded, as were possible 17th-century buried garden soils in the NE part of the site. Earlier coastal deposits were also recorded. No evidence of structures within the Citadel confines was apparent. Finds include pottery from the 17th to 19th centuries and animal bone.

Archive to be deposited in the NMRS.
