Large coffin of stone found in July 1851 at a depth of 3ft under house at corner of Price's Lane and Bishopgate Street, containing the skeleton of a child between her legs. The bodies had been covered in gypsum forming a cast preserved in the Yorkshire Museum, with fragments of cloth still adhereing to it. No grave goods are preserved from this coffin but a hole above the left shoulder of the woman's skeleton shows whence some were removed. In 1853 T Price gave the the Yorkshire Museum a small Roman coin found in a stone coffin. NGR IS SE60205112 in RCHME p108
