Abstract:
Dundee City Council commissioned Alder Archaeology Ltd to undertake an archaeological evaluation on the site of a proposed new leisure pool, multi-storey car park and ground-level car park at East Marketgait/East Whale Lane, Dundee. The proposed development area was located to the east of the southern end of East Marketgait centred on NGR NO 40734 30625. The work (site code DD54) was undertaken on the 19th and 20th of April 2010 in good weather conditions. The requirement was to evaluate 2% of the archaeologically sensitive area, which worked out at 4 trenches, each measuring 10m by 2m. The evaluation revealed that deposits on the site comprise 18th and 19th century made up ground dumped to reclaim land from the sea. At the northern end of the site one of these deposits contained re-deposited medieval pottery, suggesting that nearby Medieval remains were disturbed during this process of land reclamation. Trench 01 uncovered a cobbled yard surface, probably part of Stewart's Court, which seems to date to the first part of the 19th century. A square stone with a central slot found set into the cobbles may have been for a post connected to a stall for stabling horses. Trench 02 revealed two walls relating to the 19th century warehouses that used to cover the site prior to redevelopments in the early 1990s. The most significant find during the evaluation was the discovery of the redundant 1793 Sea Wall which was found in Trench 04. This wall, which measured over a metre in width at the top, survived to a height of 1.8m and was composed of large squared blocks of roughly mortared whinstone. The construction trench of this wall had truncated an earlier 18th century building which may have originally been built right up against the shoreline.
