Description

A watching brief was conducted by Kirkdale Archaeology in December 1998 when the excavation of a cable trench was monitored at both ends of a track at Fort George. The first section was in the ordnance yard where, below much modern disturbance, a late C18 or C19 stone and brick culvert with construction debris and yard infill relating to the same period was recorded. The other section was in a yard at the rear of the north staff block; nothing of significance was noted. <1> No further information
