Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation followed by excavation was carried out by GUARD Archaeology Limited on an area proposed for a new residential development and associated landscaping at Ardrossan Road, Seamill. The archaeological evaluation equated to 8% (10,728 m²) of the proposed development area (48,272 m²), which reduced to 3,862 m² due to the presence of services. A total of 39 trenches were excavated measuring 50 m in length across the development site. During investigation an area to the south-east of the development site (trench 33) containeda pit and three spreads comprising domestic midden material. Finds included animal bone fragments, shells and pottery sherds of late medieval/post medieval date. Across the wider development area the remains of agricultural improvements including field drainage and rig and furrow cultivation was uncovered on the subsoil surface, along with modern plough scars. On the basis of the results of this evaluation, a second phase of work was carried out on the site. This comprised further stripping to uncover the full extent of the deposit. Further pottery fragments were uncovered during this phase of work and a refuse pit containing further midden material. The pottery assemblage dates to the late-Medieval or early post-Medieval period as it combines elements and fabrics from both periods without any earlier or later material. All the sherds appear to be from jugs or jars and are glazed although some of the sherds were quite badly abraded. No structural evidence was uncovered and it is presumed the material is associated with an earlier phase of farm building at Chapelton Mains.
