Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in advance of a housing development next to the Crown Hotel on Shore Road, Airth. Two 10m long trenches were excavated on the site. Trench 1 revealed the remains of the foundations for a modern building which would have fronted onto Shore Road. The remains consisted of mortar cemented foundations and a concrete floor surrounded by demolition rubble. These remains were identified 0.4m below the surface of the site. In the south-eastern end of both trenches a ditch was identified. It measured approximately 1.8m wide and ran parallel with Shore Road. The ditch was latterly filled with a bluish grey, sticky, hard compacted silty clay with frequent inclusions of coal. The primary fill was a light grey, sticky, hard compacted silty clay with no inclusions. No dateable artefacts were retrieved from the ditch and it is suggested that the remains represent a late- or post-medieval boundary ditch. Both trenches encountered the natural subsoil at c. 1.2m below the site surface.
