ABSTRACT
Part 1 of this paper presents the results of excavations on Ladyhill and the High Street, Elgin, which provide new evidence for the castle, the backlands, the graveyard associated with the medieval parish church of St Giles and the tolbooth. These excavations also add to our knowledge of the nature and extent of the archaeology of the burgh in general. Part 2, following the excavation results, is an overview of the archaeology of Elgin, placing it in the context of the history of the town, and including a gazetteer of all sites examined in Elgin to date. Publication of this work is supported by a grant from Historic Scotland.
