Archaeology Notes

NS 396 752 Archaeological monitoring and test pitting were carried out during restoration and conservation between October 2002 and July 2003. This work followed on from a desk-based study that concluded that the site lay within the historic core of Dumbarton where medieval and later deposits may survive. The maximum depth of the disturbance was 0.9m below the current ground level. The work produced some medieval pottery dating from the 13th to the 15th centuries, as well as several post-medieval pottery sherds. No medieval structures or deposits were encountered, and it was concluded that the medieval layers from which the pottery derived probably lie at a greater depth.

Report lodged with WoSAS SMR and the NMRS.

Watching Brief (10 March 2009 - 15 April 2009)

NS 3960 7520 A watching brief was undertaken 10 March–15 April 2009 during the construction of a new

church hall. Following the demolition of the old church hall the foundations of at least three post-medieval

buildings were revealed. Beneath these were two deposits of ‘garden soil’. The lower of these two deposits contained a sherd of reduced green glazed pottery dating to the 15th to 16th century and it is thought that this represents a late medieval horizon at a depth of 0.92m below the current ground surface.
