L Blanchard 1979.

NO 1193 2369 A watching brief and limited excavation were undertaken on two phases of refurbishment work at Skinnergate House. In situ medieval deposits and later stone walls were found just below modern floor make-up levels. Work in the basement revealed that these deposits continued to a substantial depth. In the N end of the building the top of medieval deposits, comprising mainly midden material, were revealed along with Early Modern/modern stone walls. In the S part of the building well-preserved medieval structural remains were revealed, comprising clay floors and wooden sills and uprights, as well as an Early Modern stone tanning pit and later walls. Due to the anaerobic conditions much of the wood was in an excellent state of preservation and will be able to provide important dating information. From the medieval deposits, abundant pottery, shell and bone was recovered.
