Abstract:
An archaeological excavation was carried out at Graham Street, Leith, Edinburgh following the discovery of human remains during machine excavation of a foundation trench for a new housing development. Excavation demonstrated that the burial was that of a young adult male who had been interred in a supine position with his head orientated towards the north. Radiocarbon dates obtained from the right tibia suggest the individual died between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries AD. Little contextual information exists in documentary or cartographic sources to supplement this physical evidence, although a possible link with a historically attested siege or a plague cannot be discounted.
