Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 1123.00 118 234

A series of watching briefs were carried out between October 2000 and December 2001 in Perth city centre:

NO12SW 1123.00 South Street

NO12SW 1123.01 St Catherine's Road

NO12SW 1123.02 Victoria Street, King Street, Victoria Street

NO12SW 1123.03 High Street

NO 118 234 South Street. Generally, between Princes Street and Horners Lane, the upper 0.5m of the N side of the trench comprised the modern road surface and make-up, below which were medieval midden deposits, with inclusions of shell, bone, charcoal and stone. The midden deposits were separated by layers of gravel, cobbles or stones in sand and silt. At the Princes Street (W) end of the trench the midden deposits extended below 1.9m deep. These deposits terminated at shallower depths to the E, giving way to natural peaty deposits. The midden deposits were finds-rich, and large quantities of medieval bone and pottery were recovered along with a few fragments of leather shoes.
