Analysis of artefacts of metal, leather and wood,
pottery, textile and environmental remains from
archae-ological watching briefs in Perth in the 1980s
and 1990s has uncovered several items including
decorated leather fragments and an M-shaped handle
of a type not previously recorded in Perth. Mainly
dating to the 12th to 14th centuries, these objects are
evidence of medieval crafts and living and working
environment and demonstrate the survival of waterlogged
archae-ological deposits throughout the core
of medieval Perth. Deposits of horn cores at several
of these locations indicate the focus of horn working
on the edges of the medieval burgh.
