Abstract

CExcavations 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.
