Abstract:
ARCHAS Cultural Heritage Ltd were contracted by Yeoman McAllister Architects on behalf of Care Concern Holdings Ltd, to undertake an archaeological evaluation of a proposed development site at 18 Whitehouse Road in Cramond, outside Edinburgh. Preliminary research at the planning stage identified the site as one with significant archaeological potential, primarily due to the close proximity of Cramond Roman Fort. Following discussions with City of Edinburgh Council Archaeology Service, it was agreed to undertake an archaeological evaluation of the site in advance of submission of a planning application. The results of the evaluation would allow the Council to assess the presence/absence and extent of any archaeological remains and deposits prior to the submission of a full planning application. The evaluation involved the mechanical excavation of five placed evaluation trenches across the proposed footprint of the development. Linear features were revealed in the most northerly trench which matched the alignment of the fort. A shallow ditch in this trench also revealed a disarticulated human bone. A number of ephemeral and converging linear features were also recorded in Trench 2. Three of the trenches proved to be essentially archaeologically sterile, with only occasional topsoil finds. The dates of all features uncovered remains uncertain. A number of Roman artefacts were recovered, primarily from the topsoil. A small assemblage of chert lithics recovered across the site is of particular note. ARCHAS Ltd recommend further archaeological investigation before any construction on the site.
