Abstract:
Alder Archaeology was commissioned by Morgan Homes Scotland Ltd to undertake an archaeological evaluation (site code RT03) on land to the west of the Smithy, Rait, in advance of development. Rait has been the location of a church and settlement since the early medieval period (for over 1000 years). The site was considered to be potentially archaeologically significant as it lies within the core of the historic settlement, approximately 100m to the W of church ruins. The work was undertaken 19th July 2012 in good weather conditions. Two trenches were excavated and recorded. Finds of note included residual medieval pottery, post medieval pottery, modern pottery and early modern wine bottle fragments. A ditch or trench feature was found in trench 01 which was considered to be either a roadside drainage ditch or a horticultural feature. A ditch feature was also located in trench 02 which was considered to be for drainage or horticulture. These features were considered to be early modern or modern. No deposits or features relating to the medieval period were positively identified.
