Excavation archive from 67-71 Green has been catalogued. It consists of colour photographs (prints only), drawings and manuscripts.

Historic Scotland Archive Project (FO) 1997

(Classified as Flints; Flint Arrowhead: Barbed-And-Tanged; Pottery; Urban Excavation). In 1977 about 40 pieces of flint were recovered by excavation of 67-71 Green. Most of them are probably of Mesolithic date, including a core, a notched flake flakes and waste material. In addition, however, there is a barbed-and-tanged arrowhead of yellow-brown flint with curved edges and asymmetrical barbs; it measures 19mm in length by 15mm in breadth across the barbs and 3mm in thickness. The finds from the excavation are now in Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum.
