Excavations south of Bernard Street, Leith, 1980

The excavation located an extensive midden, laid down in the second half of the 15th century to reclaim an area previously below the tide-line of the Firth of Forth. Some contemporary and later structural evidence also survived. Finds included an important hoard of 15th-century billon pennies. for more click here
