Archaeological Evaluation (September 2007)

NT 2660 7650 An archaeological evaluation was undertaken during September 2007 as a condition of planning consent at 62 Coburg Street. The site lies outside the area of early medieval development but was probably in the defences constructed during the siege of Leith in 1560. It also lies in a short distance of the site of the Cromwellian citadel built in the 17th century.

There was therefore some potential for surviving archaeological remains connected to these defences. The evaluation consisted of one trench running NW-SE, across the site. A Level 1 building recording exercise was carried out on surviving 19th-century tenement walls on the site. No archaeological features of note were uncovered.
