Abstract


The evidence is considered in three sections: medieval development, the town boundary, previous investigations in the area, properties and owners. The site lay within the core of medieval Edinburgh from the 14th century onwards and would appear to form part of the rear backlands of a High Street plot or plots. The development of High Street is poorly understood.
