Medieval remains found at bank site

Medieval remains found at bank site
trefwoorden: Schotland - Edinburgh - middeleeuwen
Medieval remains have been discovered near the site of the new headquarters of the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Pottery shards, rubbish pits and animal bones were unearthed north of the A8 opposite the banking giantís headquarters, which are currently under construction at Gogarburn in the west of the city.
The discovery has given archaeologists a key insight into the way of life on the site, which was home to a medieval village hundreds of years ago. Experts believe the items suggest the site was used for agriculture in medieval times.
But the discovery has fuelled fears that the proposed £375 million tram scheme, which runs through the heart of the site of the medieval village, will have to be re-routed.
