Abstract:
Alder Archaeology Ltd undertook an archaeological evaluation on fields adjacent to Ruthven House, Ruthvenfield, Perth, for the proposed development of 12 houses, services and new road. The proposed development area was open ground, 5.8 acres in area, centred on NGR NO 0817 2551. The work (site code PE54) was undertaken during the period 17-20th September 2012 in variable weather conditions. The requirement was to evaluate 5% of the available area, that is 10,406 sq m requiring 26 trenches, each 20m in length and 2m wide. The evaluation revealed that the underlying geology is riverine, comprising undulating gravel beds with silted channels overlying clay. The evaluation revealed no archaeological evidence to support the theory that part of the Roman road running between Bertha and Strageith passes through the site. Archaeological evidence uncovered was limited to 18th and 19th cobble, rubble and red ceramic field drains, pits with rubble, a trench with ash and clay and some made up ground. A small bore modern iron water pipe was also located. Most of this archaeology was in the S part of the site. There were four features the functions of which were somewhat uncertain. These were: the cut and fill in trench 09 which was considered modern because of small pottery sherds found in the fill; the linear feature in trench 14, which contained modern glass; the linear feature in trench 18 which had the appearance of a field drain but contained no dating evidence, and the small ovoid feature in trench 20 which was considered natural. Alder Archaeology considers that no further archaeological work is required on the site.
