Abstract:
Watching briefs were maintained at Edinburgh Castle in late 2006 and early 2007 during a programme of works included in the Visitor Reception Project. Two trenches were dug under archaeological supervision, the first lying towards the SE corner of the Coalyard uncovered modern backfill associated with the construction of the present service tunnel to a depth of c 800mm. Six geo-archaeological cores were retrieved by Headland Archaeology Ltd from each of the proposed pile sites and cores to the E and middle of the yard confirmed the presence of two massive defensive ditches. Prior to the establishment of access to the new ticket office located over the Castle Coalyard, a small trench (3.5x 2m) was excavated immediately W of the Guardhouse (located in the N half of the Gatehouse). This revealed the spine of a N/S aligned vault below and this prompted the examination of a series of chambers within a service passageway located below the present Gatehouse.
