Here are snippets of
the work done by the Seton Archaeological Society 'SAS'.
Beginning in 2017, with permission from the
Leech's, this small team begun the arduent task of uncovering
the remains of the Palace of Seton that was buried in the
MacKenzie-Adam work of 1789.
What can been seen below, are photo's
provided from their work, and many more examples can be viewed
on their Facebook page, referenced above.
After uncovering the foundation-remains of
the front turrets of the Palace, and the walling connecting them
and which formed the lower portion of the vaults under the Great
Hall, they also uncovered the walling-foundations of the stables
and Guard Tower, revealing the dimensions and shapes.
Highlights include Mason's marks on the
circular turret walls, drainage-sewage foundations,
flagstone-flooring, corbelling and gun-loop fragments.
With this work documented, they turned their
attention to the old Seton Jail.
We are encouraging ALL Seton
family members to join in and celebrate what is the most
significant work at Seton, since the demolition of the
Palace. Links have been provided above and below for the
Seton Archaeological Society 'SAS' Facebook page for
Seton family members to join and support, along with
various other references.
