Standing Building Recording (November 2005 - December 2006)

NT 0038 7708 A programme of archaeological works and historic building recording was undertaken at Hame¿s Best, St Michael¿s Wynd, between November 2005 and December 2006 to satisfy a planning condition. The site was occupied by a mid- to late 18th-century stone building (Hame¿s Best), which will be retained in the development, and back garden to the rear. A RCHME Level 2 building recording was undertaken at the former two-storey stone building. In addition, a programme of archaeological works was carried out consisting of the exposing, recording and partial excavation of a domestic stone cistern within, and contemporary with, the building. In addition, archaeological monitoring was undertaken on the excavation of service trenches within the building and the removal of the W wall, the S gable and the roof. A year later further excavations for a new garage were monitored toward the S end of the same plot. This latter area had been landscaped during the creation of an adjacent railway line in the 19th century
