Archaeology Notes

NT58NE 69 5523 8523

(NT 552 852) A watching brief, site evaluation and subsequent excavation was undertaken at St Andrews Blackadder Church, High Street/St Andrew Street, before and during construction of a new church hall within the core of the medieval town. The site evaluation revealed medieval garden soil deposits, an area of mortared cobbles and a possible boundary feature. The watching brief revealed midden/garden soil deposits inside the church, and the remains of walls, a well and make-up layers on the High Street frontage. The subsequent excavation revealed medieval garden soil with abundant pottery, and 18th or 19th-century cultivation slots below 19th-century make-up and disturbance.
