Excavations were carried out (between NO 1192 2351 to 1197 2351, along South Saint John's Place) between May and June 1991, in conjunction with Tayside Regional Council Water Services Department, who were replacing a sewage pipe which ran E-W along the S side of St John's Kirk (NO12SW 41) within what had been the medieval burial ground. Fourteen complete or partially complete articulated skeletons were recovered from the undisturbed graveyard soil, all aligned E-W.
