Abstract: These are the results of a ground-penetrating radar pilot survey in search of the remains of the over-built monastic choir of the medieval Benedictine Abbey of Dunfermline in Fife, Scotland. This first stage surveyed the north choir aisle and Lady Chapel areas and beneath the modern east-end vestry, identifying numerous possible burials and architectural features at the medieval depths. This work was undertaken on 13-14th June 2016 by Erica Carrick Utsi of EMC Radar Consulting assisted by Dr Oliver O'Grady of OJT Heritage and Dr Michael Penmen of the University of Stirling. The work was commissioned by Dr Penman as part of his research into the medieval royal mausoleum of Dunfermline, with the kind permission of the Abbey Church of Dunfermline Kirk Session, and funded by the G.W.S. Barrow Award and the Strathmartine Trust. Erica Utsi is the GPR data report's sole author and retains copyright of its underlying IP and scan data. These results, and those reporting two further pilot stage surveys of 2017 and 2019 (also written by Erica Utsi, available through this repository and the websites of Dunfermline Abbey Church and Historic Environment Scotland [CANMORE database]), are in turn interpreted in our project-end report (also available through these repositories): M. Penman and E.C. Utsi, In Search of the Royal Mausoleum at the Benedictine Abbey of Dunfermline, Fife: Medieval Liturgy, Antiquarianism and a Ground-Penetrating Radar Pilot Survey, 2016- 19 (2020).
