Abstract:
An archaeological desk-based assessment, evaluation and subsequent watching brief were carried out in advance of the construction of new 6th form boarders' accommodation at Merchiston Castle School, Colinton, Edinburgh. The desk-based assessment revealed that the application area had been farming land and then became part of the ornamental grounds of Colinton House. The school buildings began to be built in the late 1920s. An evaluation of 11% of the area available for trenching resulted in 325m² of trenching. The trenches revealed no finds or features of archaeological significance, except for traces of rig and furrow aligned north-east to south-west, identified in Trenches 4, 5 and 6. The watching brief did not reveal any archaeological remains
