Abstract:
Addyman Archaeology were commissioned to undertake a programme of archaeological evaluation prior to the development of the Davie Cooper Centre to the N of Great Western Road on the edge of Clydebank. The evaluation is undertaken in advance of development, as part of planning application DC10/161/FUL through which the developer intends to erect a respite and day care centre for children and young adults with disabilities. The site lies in an area of known archaeological sensitivity, with the Antonine Wall located a short distance to the N. However, it is for prehistoric activity that the area is particularly outstanding, with a Bronze Age cemetery recorded in the immediate vicinity in the 1930s. Additional work to the E in the 1990s revealed traces of prehistoric activity and it was felt such remains may also survive in the area of the proposed development. Analysis of the site's history revealed the potential for quarrying and tipping to infringe upon the SE of the site, but no other development was recorded. The evaluation revealed large areas of the site contained deep deposits of industrial made-ground. These comprised a series of tipping events, understood locally to be demolition refuse from the Singer Sewing Machine factory in Clydebank. Natural subsoil in these areas lay at a depth of c.3.5m, although across the remainder of the site to the N and W, trenches were shallower. The archaeological evaluation resulted in the opening of 21 linear trenches totalling 679.04m2, or 5.6% of the total area to be developed.
