An archaeological excavation was carried out across an area proposed for re-development at Goosecroft Road, Stirling. The investigations uncovered the foundations of a substantial stone wall in the south-west corner of the site, and another wall further to the south, that probably relate to the nearby location of a medieval Dominican friary. Historical research provides additional background information (see Appendix 1). In addition, a burial was uncovered closely associated with the friary. Medieval midden deposits and possible boundary divisions were also discovered. The recovery of artefacts as well as radiocarbon dating evidence suggests these deposits and features are from the twelfth to the sixteenth centuries. In addition, an environmental sampling programme revealed that deep organic rich deposits originated in the early Neolithic, provided an insight into the changing environment around Stirling through to the medieval period (See Appendix 2).
