Abstract:
A trial trenching evaluation was undertaken within two areas (A and B) of re-development at the former Oaklands Special School, Broomhouse, Edinburgh. Fourteen trenches, amounting to 822.6 m2 were excavated across Area A, an area of Greenfield land; two trenches, amounting to 54m2, were excavated across Area B, the location of the former Oaklands Special School. The number and positioning of trenches was constrained by the presence of several services, largely confined to Area B. Subsoil deposits, deposits of made ground, and a stone-lined and capped culvert, together with several rubble and clay pipe field drains, were identified during the evaluation. The culvert and field drains are likely to relate to 19-20th century agricultural land management associated with the former Saughton House and Old Saughton Farm, previously situated to the immediate east and north of the development site respectively. No visible trace of a former boundary, also associated with the House and farm, and shown on the Ordnance Survey 1st Edition map was identified during the trial trenching. No features or deposits of archaeological significance were identified. Helena Gray (CFA Archaeology Group) 2013
