Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 133 1186 2363

The site had been demolished and piled for redevelopment. The frontage building was cellared to a distance of 12m back from the street. To the rear of this, black organic midden extended to a depth of at least 0.8m Piling indicated that in fact the archaeologicial deposits were much deeper. A spread of sand and gravel appeared in the south section. Oak and birch timbers were recovered along with quantities of medieval pottery.
