Archaeologists unearth gasworks in Edinburgh





Investigators have uncovered a major example of Scottish industrial archaeology in the middle of Edinburgh.
They have found the remains of the capital's original gasworks, which was opened almost 200 years ago.

The site, which was discovered during redevelopment of the area, lies to the east of Edinburgh's Waverley station.

Edinburgh City Council's archaeologist, John Lawson, said Edinburgh's history was more normally associated with medieval times.
