Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was carried out at 41 Commercial Street, Leith at the request of Tiso Pension Trustees. The medieval chapel of St Nicholas and its burial ground were located in the vicinity and the site lies within Leith Citadel, a Cromwellian military fortress constructed in 1656. Wood`s plan of 1777 shows structures located on the site and Bell`s map of 1813 shows a number of these structures to have survived into the 19th century. The site appears to have been scarped in the 19th century, probably removing any upstanding remains relating to the Citadel. No evidence was uncovered for features related to the medieval chapel. No in situ evidence was uncovered for the survival of features or structures related to the Citadel, but redeposited pottery dating to the later 17th century pottery suggests that there is potential for truncated remains related to this monument to survive within the site. There is a moderate potential for sub-surface archaeological remains related to later post-medieval activity on the site to have survived.
