Flood prevention dig unearths finds in Scotland

Published on April 18th, 2011 | by Admin


An 18th century ice house, medieval pottery and a 17th century farm house have been found in Craigmiller, Scotland during a flood prevention dig.

“What we’re looking at now is evidence from the past 400 years and we hope to get evidence going back beyond that.

“One of the things we have found was something we never knew existed, an early farmhouse. “We have found a very nice well associated with the farmhouse which may throw up some interesting artefacts.”

The remains of the farm include cobbled surfaces and hearth and stone foundations.
