‘Keeping a close watch: pottery, faunal remains and artefacts from Perth Watching Briefs’

11 November 2016

Abstract

Analysis of artefacts of metal, leather and wood, pottery, textile and environmental remains from archae-ological watching briefs in Perth in the 1980s and 1990s has uncovered several items including decorated leather fragments and an M-shaped handle of a type not previously recorded in Perth. Mainly dating to the 12th to 14th centuries, these objects are evidence of medieval crafts and living and working environment and demonstrate the survival of waterlogged archae-ological deposits throughout the core of medieval Perth. Deposits of horn cores at several of these locations indicate the focus of horn working on the edges of the medieval burgh.
