Archaeology Notes

NT27SE 103.03 283 744

NT 283 744 A watching brief was carried out at Restalrig Parish Church (NMRS NT27SE 103.00) in November 1998, during the excavation of two pipe trenches in the vicinity of the gatehouse. The gatehouse is an 18th-century building with 19th-century additions.

The shallow nature of the pipe trenches meant that no archaeological deposits of pre-19th-century date were disturbed, and no finds were retained. A number of fragments of human remains were revealed; these were reburied.
