Archaeology Notes

A watching brief was carried out during July and August 1985 in advance of an extension to Boots the Chemists Ltd. Among features observed were a well c 3.90m deep, and probably stone and timber revetted; a sandstone post-medieval slabbed culvert running NS through the site; traces of possible pits; and a depth of well preserved organic deposits starting c.0.90m to 1.20m below ground surface. All archaeological deposits stopped between 3.00m and 4.5m below ground surface. A range of Perth local and white gritty pottery wares was recovered along with fragments of leather, timber and wattle.

M Lind 1985.
