Abstract:
Alder Archaeology Ltd undertook an archaeological rescue excavation (DD55) in November 2010 followed by a watching brief (DD55WB) in July and August 2011 on the site of a new leisure pool and car park, at Marketgait/East Whale Lane, Dundee at NGR NO 4073 3062. The northern part of the site was considered to be of archaeological significance in that it contained the presumed line of the medieval and post-medieval defences extending southwards from the Wishart Arch or Cowgate Port and the Seagate Port. It also contained previous shorelines dating from 15th-18th C mainly running E-W across the site. The excavation revealed post medieval infill deposits with residual medieval pottery and animal bone. Late infill deposits had been cut by substantial walls of 18th-19th C warehouses. One wall was considered to represent an 18th C revetting wall or sea wall close to the former shoreline. Of interest were some sherds of 18th C industrial pottery found in infilling deposits. These sherds were unusual as they were from vessels used in sugar refining and were thought to have come from the Dundee Sugarhouse, located nearby in Sugarhouse Wynd. During the construction phase a watching brief (DD55WB) took place at the N end of the site and monitored the area of the 16th C shore. Adjacent to Seagate the 16th C shore revealed deeply buried infill deposits with a substantial assemblage of medieval pottery sherds, the earliest dating from the 12th C. A late or post medieval wall was found as well as a garden soil and the foundations and floor remains of 18th-19th C warehouses to the E and W of the site of West Whale Lane.
