Abstract
The excavated remains have been grouped into four phases; however, given their distribution in two separate areas, and across a number of burgage plots and on different levels, exact contemporaneity cannot be assumed. The sequences in Areas A and B are described separately since there is nothing to tie them together stratigraphically. In broad terms, Phase 1 denotes the period up to the late 15th/early 16th century, during which the backlands of the burgage plots do not appear to have been built up, and the evidence largely consists of pits and buried soil deposits. During phase 2, the first substantial buildings on the site appear. Although the date of construction of these buildings is not easy to demonstrate, this coincides with the well-documented expansion of Edinburgh from the late 16th and 17th centuries. Phase 3, from the mid 18th to the 19th century, saw widespread demolition and redevelopment on the site; further redevelopment in the late 19th century, assigned to phase 4, followed the building of Waverley Station and the creation of Jeffrey Street, and included the expansion of the tannery over the western part of the site.
