Type Archaeological Evaluation


NT 2636 7377 An archaeological evaluation was carried out on a 4ha parcel of land adjacent to Calton Road and Old Tolbooth Wynd. The two northernmost trenches contained a buried cultivation soil, up to 2m thick, containing ceramic artefacts dating between the 12th and 18th centuries, situated at some depth below modern 'made ground'. In the other five trenches, 'made ground' and recent building foundations directly overlay or truncated natural subsoil.
