Archaeology Notes

NJ90NW 833 94550 06384

NJ 9455 0639 Building work at the Salvation Army Citadel revealed a medieval wall foundation in an open area at the rear (east) of the site, close to the area occupied by Aberdeen castle. The wall was recorded and then covered up; the area is being landscaped but it was possible to leave the wall in situ.
