Activities

Watching Brief (13 May 1997)

NO51NW 289 510 167

NO 510 167 A watching brief was carried out in May 1997 on a site being redeveloped as housing behind 29-31 Market Street. A brick building of relatively recent date previously stood on the site.

None of the exposed trenches revealed deposits of archaeological significance, but one test-pit, dug just by the W garden wall of the property, uncovered two wider base courses or foundations of older walls below the upstanding wall of mortared sandstone rubble: the upper of cut sandstone blocks, possibly salvaged from a building, the lower of unshaped sandstone rubble, an indicator of the persistence of property boundaries over time in Scotland?s older towns.
