Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation and watching brief were carried out by AOC Archaeology Group on land to the west of Alderstone Road, Livingston prior to a residential development. The archaeological works showed that the majority of the development area had been subjected to considerable recent dumping. The evaluation in the southern half of the site displayed a lack of any buried soils below the dumped material, indicating that it may have been stripped prior to this build up of modern made ground. The watching brief in the northern half of the site provided similar results where natural soils were revealed, however most of the ground breaking works did not reach the base of the made ground. The vestigial remains of rig and furrow cultivation were found to exist in a single trench during the evaluation but no significant archaeological features or artefacts were revealed during the works.
