The Newbigging ceramic material, listed and photographed on the enclosed disk has been assigned to the National Museums of Scotland and was catalogued using accession numbers (FD 2004.1.1 to 507. This small and fairly commonplace ceramic assemblage derives from a pottery of 19th and early 20th century date. The shards have been divided by fabric type, form and decoration into 6 folders and 58 files. The majority of the pottery was recovered during a small rescue excavation and salvage operation funded by Historic Scotland. Most of the on site work was carried out by Alison McIntyre, Alan Radley and the author over a three week period at the end of December 1987 and beginning of January 1988
