Abstract


A research project was undertaken at Gilmerton Cove, Edinburgh by CFA Archaeology Ltd in advance of its development as a visitor attraction by City of Edinburgh Council. Historical research indicates that the Cove was built in the early 18th century. Excavation revealed hitherto unknown details of the layout of the Cove, including the presence of features cut into the rock floors; a well or cistern; a sump; and a second entrance.
