Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 151 119 235 and 115 236

Cowan records nineteenth century discoveries of buildings and paved streets 15ft 4.5m below the present street around St John's and St Paul's Churches. Specifically he mentions a 'subterranean stable' of 'neatly wrought twigs of trees' but wrongly associates them with pre-historic periods.

S Cowan 1904; A T Simpson and A S Stevenson 1982.
