Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by CFA in April 2013 on land between Canongate, Holyrood Road and St John Street in Edinburgh. Five trenches were excavated: 133m² was examined to the east of St Mary's Land and 42m² to the west. The evaluation has identified that: Foundations and discontinuous interior surfaces of the 19th century brewery buildings survive in the eastern side of the site close to the surface, extensively damaged through their demolition and the later use of the site, and covered in demolition material. What are interpreted as garden soils of potentially medieval to post-medieval date are present between 1.44m and 2m below the site surface and are present to depths greater than 3m below the current site surface. The evidence from the evaluation supports that of the site investigation which suggests that the natural subsurface rises towards the present day surface quite rapidly as one moves north from the southern boundary wall. The evaluation also supports the theory that the deeper soil deposits are constrained to the southern part of the site. Ian Suddaby CFA Archaeology Ltd, 2013.
