Archaeology Notes

NT27NE 1557 273 763

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in October 2004 prior to a housing development. Eight trenches covering 186m2 were excavated. A gully of possibly post-medieval date was identified at a depth of 1.2m below the surface. This appeared to run across the SE corner of the site from Elbe Street. Several walls, both brick and stone, were uncovered, which probably relate to the warehouses previously recorded on the site and which have since been demolished.

Report lodged with Edinburgh SMR and the NMRS.
