Archaeological Evaluation (1998)

NT17NE 96 centred 1923 7657

NT 193 765 An evaluatory excavation was undertaken at Cramond Campus to determine the nature and extent of any archaeological remains outwith the Scheduled area.

Excavation consisted of 11 hand-dug trenches located to define the limits of Roman occupation to the SE of the Roman fort. Apart from confirming the line of a known Roman road, no other Roman remains or traces of Roman occupation were found. Evidence of landscaping of the southern end of the site was apparent, presumably undertaken in order to level the playing fields.
