Archaeology Notes

NT58NE 190 NT 553 852

In March 2005 an evaluation was undertaken in advance of housing development. Three trenches were opened, one

of which exposed a slab-lined long cist containing human bone. Unauthorised soil stripping destroyed both this feature and any other unknown adjacent graves. A quantity of human bone was subsequently retrieved from this excavated soil. Further recording and excavation work at Law Road uncovered a stratigraphically lower, square short cist, within which were the bones of more than one individual, an iron knife and an iron penannular brooch.

Report lodged with East Lothian SMR and NMRS.
