Activities

Watching Brief (August 2008)

NT 3499 7149 In August 2008 a desk-based assessment indicated that the development was in an area which contains a dense distribution of prehistoric, Roman and medieval remains. Although no significant remains are known to exist on the site of the new conservatory it lies on the line of the 19th-century lane linking Inveresk Station with Carberry Road.

The building contractor’s groundworks, monitored on 13 August 2008, involved the hand excavation of strip

foundation trenches, but no stripping of topsoil outside these trenches. A single potential archaeological feature was recorded, a foundation of stone bonded with lime mortar. This foundation, although undated, was probably relatively recent and had been constructed over made ground.
