Morrison Haven, East Lothian, Scotland Ceramic Resource Disc 7



The pottery listed, described, and photographed in the enclosed ceramic resource disk has been assigned to East Lothian Council Museum Service. It was catalogued using the accession numbers (FD.2008.1.1 to 374) and classified and divided by fabric type, form, and decoration into (7) folders and (44) files, created in Microsoft Word. The catalogue also incorporates both earlier and later ceramic material. In total, forty-three boxes of ceramic material were recovered during Phases 1 and 2 of the Prestongrange Community Archaeology Project (PCAP) developed and co-ordinated by the East Lothian Council Archaeology and Museum Services. This was grant aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund and supported by Historic Scotland, East Lothian Council, the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, Scottish Power, and Friends of Prestongrange. The on-site archaeology and building recording was carried out by a team of 20 or so volunteers working in conjunction with CFA Archaeology Ltd. Before any fieldwork commenced, preliminary desk based assessment was undertaken by David Anderson (East Lothian Council Museum Service (Anderson 2003) followed by more intensive desk-based research by Mike Cressey and Richard Oram (Cressy & Oram 2005). During the fieldwork further research has been undertaken by Alasdair Ross and volunteer members of the project team. All research reports can be downloaded as a pdf file/word files from the (PCAP) website
