Abstract:
Headland Archaeology (UK) Ltd conducted an archaeological evaluation and an historic buildings assessment at 160 Canongate/Sugarhouse Close/41, 49, 53 Holyrood Road in Edinburgh. The evaluation comprised some intrusive trial trenching to establish the nature of any below-ground archaeology in accessible areas of the site, while the historic building assessment considered the twelve standing structures, many of them forming complexes of attached buildings, on the former brewery site. A total of six trial trenches were excavated, four in the northern terrace, two in the southern. Most of the trenches encountered remains of 18th/19th century structures lying directly underneath modern surfaces and make-up. Archaeological remains uncovered in the northern terrace appeared to represent the remains of buildings associated with a brewery which appeared on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey (1896) map, with evidence of deep deposits of made-ground directly pre-dating these buildings in some areas. No structures of medieval or definite pre-19th century date were found although one trench in the northern terrace produced evidence of relatively thick surviving medieval 'garden soils'. The work established that there is some survival of medieval and post-medieval remains within the northern terrace. The two trenches in the southern terrace uncovered the basements of tenements and shops which first appeared on the Ordnance Survey Town Plan (1867-77) and were demolished during the late 1970s.
