Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken in July 2008 on a topsoil strip in advance of the construction of an artificial hockey pitch at the Mary Erskine School, Ravelston. The work was commissioned in response to a planning condition. There was a potential for uncovering the remains of field or park boundaries relating to Ravelston House (NT27SW 127.00). The topsoil was removed by machine under archaeological supervision over three days. This revealed that 1960s ground works for the construction of an earlier grass pitch had removed the original ground surface, and disturbed much of the weathered glacial till subsoil. No remains of archaeological significance were encountered. This may suggest that no remains were ever present in the exposed area, or that any such remains had been completely truncated by the previous development.
