Excavations in Linlithgow High Street between
1966 and 1977 found evidence of an intensive
fifteenth and sixteenth century tanning industry,
and a large volume of worked antler waste.
Documentary sources confirm a concentration
of tanning and related trades from the sixteenth
to the nineteenth century. Foundations of
seventeenth to nineteenth century stone
buildings were also discovered. The postexcavation
analysis and publication of these excavations was funded by Historic Scotland.
