Abstract:
Alder Archaeology Ltd undertook an archaeological watching brief on the excavation for the construction of a new footpath in King's Park, Stirling. The overall length of the footpath was approximately 300m, with the mid part of the route being centred on NGR NS 7904 9306 during the period 5-12 May 2010 in good weather conditions. The site was considered to have potential because in the 1970's the remains of a Roman road were recorded inside the park's main south eastern gateway at the south end of the new footpath. There is also written evidence of First World War practice trenches near the route. The 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan shows that part of the route is over a 19th century horse racing circuit. The watching brief found one cut feature that could be possibly be the result of activity during the First World War. A deposit of in-situ natural gravel at the south end of the trench may have provided surfacing for the recorded Roman road. The excavation revealed natural sands and gravels below stony topsoil with little evidence of any substantial activity.
