Abstract
A total of 4,873 pottery sherds were produced raning in date from the 12th-19th century. Thin-sectioning and ICPS analysis were undertaken on selected sherds of Scottish White Gritty Ware. Perhaps the most striking feature of the assemblage is the importance of the information provided by the later medieval and post-medieval wares. Such assemblages are rare discoveries in Scottish burghs simply because deposits of that date have rarely survived the development boom of the 19th century when digging of cellars removed earlier deposits. The quality of the medieval and post-medieval assemblages is very high and is presumably an indication of the status of the inhabitants of the buildings on the Canongate frontage and Queensberry House.
