Abstract:
This paper presents the results of a series of excavations carried out by the City of Edinburgh Council Archaeology Service between 1990 and 1992 in advance of the Edinburgh Park development. Following a programme of test excavations, seven areas were opened up for excavation. Three of these contained significant archaeology dating to the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. The main findings included a Neolithic trackway, evidence for Bronze Age settlement and a large stone-built structure dating to the beginning of the first millennium AD.

This paper presents the results of a series of excavations carried out by the City of Edinburgh Council Archaeology Service between 1990 and 1992 in advance of the Edinburgh Park development. Following a programme of test excavations, seven areas were opened up for excavation. Three of these contained significant archaeology dating to the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. The main findings included a Neolithic trackway, evidence for Bronze Age settlement and a large stone-built structure dating to the beginning of the first millennium AD.

A detailed archaeological description is organised by phase. Features in Area A were badly truncated and there was a lack of dating absence. They comprised linear features, pits, one of which was stone lined, a possible ring ditch and an 'avenue' of postholes. Features in Area B included a trackway and a large pit of Neolithic or early Bronze Age date. Other noteworthy features included a large stone structure in Area F which produced a radiocarbon date in the Iron Age.

The assemblage comprised a mix of carbonised plant remains including cereal grains, seeds/fruits of wild taxa and one chaff fragment.

The results of the excavation appear to indicate that the areas investigated were located at the periphery of more intense foci of activity. It is recognised that, with hindsight, and in a modern development context, a more robust sampling strategy would have been pursued initially and that the entire development site would have been subjected to a more exhaustive programme of works including the stripping and excavation of much larger areas.
