Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 237 1185 2363

The location of the excavation is at 103 High Street, and not 105 as published in the Dundee Evening Telegraph for 24 March 1992.

Information from Mr D Hall (SUAT), 7 April 1992.

An excavation was carried out, between February and April 1992, prior to the rebuilding of Abbey National's offices at 103 High Street, Perth. The excavation revealed floors and hearths within a sequence of timber buildings fronting onto the medieval High Street. It seems that the High Street was wider than it is today, with the medieval buildings lying 3.5m N of the modern street frontage.

The gravel road surfaces outside the building, dipped sharply to the S, perhaps into a gutter. Pottery from the site dates to the end of the 12th century.

Sponsor: Abbey National Building Society.
