Watching Brief (14 August 2007 - 17 October 2007)

NT 193 855 Work was undertaken between 14 August-17 October 2007. One trench was excavated around the base of a stone buttress to the SE of an arch spanning the kirk lane in the grounds of St Fillan's Church, Aberdour. The arch and buttress may be related to the construction of a summerhouse (now removed) in the E corner of a walled garden to the E of Aberdour Castle in the 17th century. A test pit had been excavated immediately to the NE of the NE face of the buttress to establish whether it had once extended in this direction as indicated by the protruding masonry of the NE face, but no structure was discovered. The current excavation was carried out in stages over three days. No structures or significant finds were discovered. Some pantile fragments were found which may relate to the 17th-century summerhouse, as well as oyster shells, china fragments and two iron objects of unknown date which have been sent for conservation and x-ray.
