Abstract:
A watching brief was maintained during the excavation of a service trench running N from the N wall of The Palace of Holyroodhouse past the W end of Holyrood Abbey. The trench followed the line of a previous pipe trench as closely as possible to avoid disturbing any previously unbroken ground. Towards the S end of the trench there was a concentration of human bone in the backfill culminating in the discovery of an E-W aligned grave at the SW corner of the north tower of the abbey. This burial had been cut through by the earlier pipe trench. It is likely that more than one grave was cut through by the pipe trench but only one definite grave was identified with fragments of bone protruding from either side of the trench. Also at the SW corner of the north corner tower a concrete repair was revealed inserted under the foundations. It is possible that the pipe trench cut through the corner of the foundations of the north corner tower and the damage was repaired with concrete.
