Abstract:
The laying of a water main at St. Michael''s churchyard, Dallas was monitored for possible archaeological evidence. The pipeline runs along the road verge adjoining the front (southern) edge of the graveyard. The church itself stands on a medieval site and the churchyard contains a Scheduled market cross, said to be one of the oldest in Scotland. It was therefore possible that burials or other features of archaeological importance could extend outwith the modern churchyard boundary. The contractors'' trench revealed clean and undisturbed sandy silts, apart from one location opposite the entrance to the side access to the church, where there was a manhole and associated drains, and indications of a wide, almost certainly natural depression, containing a fill of rounded cobbles below layered silts. This was interpreted as a former pond or similar. There are no recommendations for further archaeological work at this site.
