From 2001 to 2004, a programme of archaeological work was conducted during upgrading of the A1 road to dual carriageway between Haddington and Dunbar in East Lothian. The work involved trial trenching, monitoring of topsoil stripping and excavation of 11 archaeological sites, carried out by Glasgow University Archaeological Research Division (GUARD). The sites ranged chronologically over a period of 5,000 years, from the early fourth millennium BC to the early first millennium AD. The work was funded by the Scottish Executive Trunk Roads Design and Construction Division and monitored by Historic Scotland.
