Abstract :
Reports on 1992 excavations undertaken in advance of redevelopment. Three burgage plots were identified with medieval occupation spanning some three centuries from the mid-late 12th c. to the late 14th or early 15th cs. Structural remains were not well represented, but there was significant evidence for small-scale craftworking on the site. Importantly, the burgage plots had been laid out over a wattle-lined ditch, radiocarbon dated to ca. AD 998-1039, which may have defined an enclosure round an early church, the first real evidence (other than stray finds), for pre-burghal settlement in Perth. There are specialist reports on pottery, coins, textiles, animal bone, and botanical remains. ;
