Abstract:
Headland Archaeology Ltd was commissioned to undertake a programme of archaeological works at Wanton Walls Farm, 103 Newcraighall Road, Edinburgh, to satisfy a planning condition set out by the City of Edinburgh Council. The programme of works consisted of a rapid desk based assessment (DBA), historic building recording (HBR) and an archaeological evaluation. Ten trenches were excavated, providing a 5% sample of the available land. Made ground containing rubble and modern brick was encountered in all the trenches. In most this was present over a buried topsoil sealing glacial till. In three trenches made ground was present directly on the till, suggesting some parts of the site had been subject to truncation. Several cut features were recorded in glacial till. All were interpreted as relating to the known post-medieval occupation of the farm. The archaeological evaluation did not reveal any evidence for earlier settlement and it seems likely that the farmstead was created on a 'greenfield' site in the 18th century.
