Abstract:
1.1 This report presents the results of an archaeological evaluation undertaken by AOC Archaeology Group at Masterton Park, Dunfermline, Fife (centred NGR: NT 1335 8535). The work was commissioned by EMA Architecture and Design Limited on behalf of Bellway Homes (East Scotland), with respect to a proposed housing development. The archaeological works were designed to satisfy the requirements of the local planning authority, Fife Council, as advised by Mr. Douglas Speirs, Senior Archaeologist, and are in accordance with the principles inherent in NPPG 5 (SOEnd 1994) and PAN 42 (SOEnd 1994a). Thirty-eight trenches of varying orientation were excavated covering a basal area of 7,820 m², equating to just over the required 8% sample. The trenches were of varying lengths and set on differing orientations. Weather and visibility conditions during the evaluation, conducted between 10th and 21st December 2007, were generally very favourable to the identification of archaeological remains. The topsoil contained very little of commonly found durable 18th-20th century anthropic material such as fragments of glass or glazed ceramics. In summary the evaluation identified neither significant archaeological features nor artefacts.The significant balance of probability is that the development area is archaeologically sterile.
