Archaeology Notes

NT 2552 7342 A watching brief was completed in February 2004 on the hand-excavation of two 1m² trenches, up to 0.7m deep, for foundations within the basement of the Traverse Theatre. A small deposit of charcoal, shell and mortar was encountered at the base of one of these trenches. This was interpreted as either the beginning of the medieval stratigraphy, or alternatively the beginning of further building deposits. No associated artefacts were observed.
