Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in advance of a proposed housing development within the former grounds of St David''s School, Dalkeith, Midlothian. The evaluation entailed 5% trial trenching of undisturbed areas within the school grounds. A number of features were recorded that are representative of cultivation and field improvement. These took the form of rubble field drains, furrows and other possible cultivation beds. Several pits and postholes were also recorded. These features suggest a phase of medieval cultivation within the site. Numerous tree throw holes were encountered; these confirm the previous use of the area as woodland and help to explain the limited nature of the archaeology identified.
