Archaeology Notes

NT58NE 116 55280 85284

NT 5528 8527 A watching brief was conducted during the excavation of foundation trenches for an extension to the rear of a property fronting onto the High Street. While the trenching itself did not damage any archaeology, a small sondage cut into the bottom of the trench did reach deposits containing medieval pottery and a possible surface. A record was also made of a pre-1854 gable-end wall which is adjacent to the development.

Full details lodged with the NMRS.

NT 552 852 Excavations took place within the back garden of 71 High Street, North Berwick, prior to the construction of an extension. Although the depth of foundations did not impinge on any significant archaeological layers, it was evident from the redeposited loose finds that were recovered (including a number of sherds of early post-medieval reduced ware), that archaeological deposits remained intact to a probable depth of 1.5-2.0m in this area.

Archive to be deposited in the NMRS.
