Archaeological Notes

NT18SW 73 13 82.

Though there is a reference to a Blackfriars' (Dominican) monastery at Inverkeithing in an undated charter, this charter must be regarded as unauthentic. Stephen states that 'of the existence of a religious house of the Black Friars the evidence is by no means conclusive'.
W Stephen 1921; I B Cowan and D E Easson 1976
