Abstract


Excavations between 1986 and 1987 at frontage sites on the pre-nineteenth-century thoroughfare out of Aberdeen to the north, as part of an overall programme to establish the nature of medieval deposits in Old Aberdeen. Despite nineteenth-twentieth-century disturbance, it was possible at both sites to establish that the earliest evidence of activity was of seventeenth-century date. At the Don Street site five small domestic kilns were excavated. There are short notes on `The clay pipes' by Susanne Atkin (926) and `The coins' by Stewart Thain (926).
