Watching Brief (2 February 2009 - 6 February 2009)

NS 5565 6568 (centred on) A watching brief consisting of monitoring trial pits and boreholes dug as part of a

contamination survey was carried out 2–6 February 2009. Archaeological features were identified in several trial pits and the project has provided a valuable opportunity to investigate a potentially archaeologically significant area. A detailed desk-based assessment was also undertaken to examine a range of primary and secondary sources including historic and modern maps, paintings and etchings and documentary sources, revealing a detailed picture of the industrial expansion and development of Govan.
