Archaeology Notes

NT17NE 126 centred 1870 7700

NT 1870 7700 The first phase of an arable fieldwalking project was held in the vicinity of a potential shell midden, noted on aerial photographs. The midden location itself had not been ploughed and evidence for its existence was inconclusive. A lithic scatter was found in the adjacent ploughsoil; this produced some cores and microliths of Mesolithic date.

The project was undertaken by kind permission of the Rt Hon the Earl of Rosebery.

Sponsors: City of Edinburgh Council Archaeology Service, Edinburgh Archaeological Field Society.

NT 1870 7670 The second phase of the fieldwalking project extended the area to the S of that previously reported (Jones 1998). The lithic scatter was found to continue primarily along the rising ground adjacent to the W bank of the River Almond. Flint and chert cores, microliths, blades and debitage were found.

The project was undertaken by kind permission of the Rt Hon The Earl of Rosebery.
