Abstract:
Mr Steven Johnston commissioned SUAT on behalf of his client, Mr William Sutherland, to carry out an excavation and watching brief on the site of a new build house in Abernethy, on the west side of School Wynd (NGR NO 1895 1640), close to a stone round tower dating from between the 9th and 11th centuries AD. An evaluation of the site by AOC Archaeology (2006) had exposed an unidentified spread of rounded stones. Accordingly, an area measuring 10m x 10m was excavated by SUAT to expose any additional remains. Beneath highly disturbed topsoil and rubble relating to previous use of the site as a market garden, a roughly metalled track was exposed, overlying a massive drystone wall foundation and a series of clay and silt deposits. AMS dating of roundwood charcoal (GU-15168) extracted from directly beneath the wall, within the wall trench, suggested a calibrated date range of 890-1020 AD. Beneath the wall, an apparent alignment of postholes was exposed, together with a curious pit feature that might have represented cooking, metal working or perhaps an apple or cheese press. A Watching Brief was carried out on the 14 of May 2008 and on the 5th and 6th of January 2009 during the construction of the new house. The excavation of a number of narrow trenches for drains was observed during this work. A number of stony deposits were revealed, possibly representing the remains of further drystone walls. Layers of clay, ash, charcoal, degraded bone and burnt sandstone were found frequently during the excavation of the drains, suggesting that midden material was dumped on the site and that some sort of fire-related activity was carried out nearby.
