Details A watching brief was carried out by Aberdeen City Council Archaeological Unit in 1981 on a new mains sewer trench across the market stance between East North Street and Castle Street. Observation of the trench, which was circa 2m deep, trench showed that over the whole area, the existing car park surface lies directly on top of natural sand and gravel. The only intrusions into natural were modern drains and no medieval or post-medieval material was observed. The lack of any soil over the sand and gravel suggests that the area was levelled, possibly to provide gravel for the building up of Union Street.
