Archaeology Notes

NT37SW 210 343 726.

Prior to extensive redevelopment of a 2,5OO sq m site, located within the historic core of the medieval burgh, four trial trenches were hand excavated, one close to the frontage, one across an adjoining vennel and two to the rear of the site. The area was found to be extensively disturbed as a result of 20th-century construction and demolition activity. Demolition debris and modern make up deposits were found across the entire site. Natural coarse orange sand was encountered at c O.8m below ground surface. No archaeological deposits, features or artefacts were discovered.
