Archaeology Notes

NT27SE 5191 268 738

NT 268 738 A watching brief was undertaken in March 2002 during the excavation of a series of boreholes and test pits, located on the S side of the Coachmen's House, near Holyrood Palace. The sites lie at the southern end of a range of service buildings which define the W side of the Palace forecourt, and most lie within an open area presently used as a garden.

The upper deposit in every area appeared to have been deposited or disturbed in recent times. Beneath the recent material was a large amount of make-up material.

Archive to be deposited in the NMRS.
