Archaeology Notes

NJ90NW 255 940 067

Five trenches were excavated by machine to assess the archaeological potential of the site once occupied by the Ogston and Tennant Soap and Candle factory. The site is adjacent to areas where substantial medieval remains extending back from Gallowgate were recorded during previous excavations (NJ90NW 93, NJ90NW 96, NJ90NW 128, NJ90NW 221, NJ90NW 240 ). On this present site, disturbance had removed any medieval backland traces, however. Examination of natural levels adjacent to modern Loch Street indicated that the eastern edge of the medieval loch did not impinge upon the area of the site.
