Archaeology Notes

NO50NE 24 589 067

Two architectural fragments were located in Crail during local field work and have now been taken to Crail Preservation Society Museum (Acc Nos 1987: 41, 1987: 42).

1987: 41 is triangular, the apex of a gablet or pediment, with relief chevron decoration on the face and opposing edge-scrolls. White sandstone. Height 640mm, width 805mm, depth 140mm.

1987: 42 has been squared for use as a building stone; it is from the left side of a carved panel. The decoration includes a rosette and part of a scroll on the left, an H and the corner of a coat of arms. White sandstone. Height 290mm, width 480mm, depth 180mm.

Both stones were formerly built into the steading at Thirdpart Farm (at NO 589 067) where they were understood to be from the 'castle', possibly the demolished house of West Barns.
