Description

EXCAVATION evaluation, YAT, Bishophill Senior car-park data point, north-west side of site (Trench 2?) Three excavation trenches fronting on to Buckingham Street demonstrated that archaeological deposits had been truncated by modern cellaring to a depth of 1.70m. Immediately behind this area a fourth trench encountered post-medieval garden soil. In the south east corner of the site, the furthest distance from Buckingham Street, a fifth trench encountered demolition deposits and the robbed remains of a Roman building, comprising two walls at 90 degrees to each other. This material was sealed beneath approximately 1m depth of post-medieval garden soil.
