Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken of the site off the High Street, Glasgow, which had previously been the college goods yard railway depot. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the potential that archaeological deposits pre dating the railway yard survived. The western part of the site, beneath the railway yard deposits, consisted of made up ground that extended beyond the 4-5 m excavation in the test pits within the main trench. In the eastern area of the site the natural slope down to the molendinar burn was located in two trenches, one of which showed modification and management of the drainage on the slope prior to infilling. In the southern area of the eastern side of the site the lowest level of sandstone built cottage was located. It was not clear whether the cottage was present when the burn was open or whether it was constructed after the burn had been canalised and infilled. In general it appeared that the eastern most part of the site had been heavily truncated removing any chance of archaeological remains surviving. The point from the mid parts of trenches 1 and 2 westward did, however, show potential for archaeological remains being preserved, particularly those to the east of the culverted burn.
