Archaeology Notes

NT19SW 23 1080 9210

Easter Craigduckie Brick and Tile Works have been reduced to earthworks. The works are depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Fife & Kinross, 1856, sheet 35) as roofed, but only one building is shown on the 2nd edition of the OS 6-inch map, (Fifeshire,1896, sheet xxxiv SW). The earthworks consist of a clay pit on the NW and several rectinlinear sunken floored structures on the higher ground to the SE. One of these structures is L-shaped, but the best-defined is rectangular, measuring 24m in length by 5m transversely. There are traces of trackways leading from the pit between the structures. On the date of visit the site of a building depicted on the 1st edition (ibid), to the NW was obscured in deep grass (NT 1075 9214).
