Introduction

This site,  to the south of St. Rule's Church (site no.1472) n the precinct of St Andrews Cathedral,  was excavated but the foundations that were revealed have now been covered over.   It is thought to have dated to the twelfth century although no trace of it remains.   Excavation in the past revealed foundations and part of an early English-style clustered column  but tt is not certain whether these remains are part of this chapel.
