Archaeology Notes

NT53SE 107.01 5913 3180

NT 5913 3180 An evaluation was undertaken by Headland Archaeology Ltd in advance of a proposed hotel extension. Four evaluation trenches were excavated in the area which lies to the N of Dryburgh Abbey. The only archaeological features encountered were a spread of mortar and a buried topsoil, neither of which could be dated. Two sherds of unstratified post-medieval pottery were recovered.
