Archaeology Notes

NJ90NW 327 944 064

A 13th-century, locally made jug was brought to the attention of the archaeological unit. It was originally found in 1872 during excavation of an extension to 13 King Street, Aberdeen. An article from a newspaper of that date is attached to the side of the vessel. It was not claimed as Treasure Trove and was purchased by the City of Aberdeen from the finder.
