Archaeology Notes

NT27SE 353 2583 7347

Machine trenching at Guthrie Street car park, off the Cowgate, failed to locate any archaeological deposits earlier than the 19th century.

N M M Holmes 1977c; A T Simpson, S Stevenson and N Holmes 1981.

NT 2582 7346 Five trial trenches were excavated in advance of development to further explore the site previously investigated in 1977. No archaeological deposits had survived: bedrock/boulder clay lay immediately below modern ground level.
