Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by AOC Archaeology at Pointhouse Quay, Glasgow Lanarkshire (centred NGR: NS 5591 6596). The work was commissioned by Culture and Sport Glasgow, on behalf of the Riverside Museum in advance of the redevelopment of the former quayside. The archaeological works were designed to satisfy the requirements of the local planning authority, as advised by the West of Scotland Archaeology Service (WoSAS) and are in accordance with the principles inherent in NPPG 5 (SOEnd 1994) and PAN 42 (SOEnd 1994a). The objective of the work was to prevent any negative physical impact on the archaeological resource without prior recording as derived from ground-works associated with the excavation of 'super-trenches' within the site. The work was carried out during March-July 2008 and was conducted according to the terms of a Written Scheme of Investigation (AOC 2008) which was agreed by WoSAS, and approved by the planning authority. The watching brief monitored the excavation of super trenches (for access routes) below the new buildings. The watching brief revealed the area had been built up through the deposition of made-ground over alluvial sands. No features or artefacts of archaeological significance were observed. No further archaeological works are recommended.
