PROJECT DETAILS A programme of archaeological observation, investigation and recording was undertaken by Humber Field Archaeology during groundwork associated with the construction of 6 detached dwellings and garages including garage for existing dwelling and associated infrastructure on land at 2 Corner Garth, Earswick Village, Earswick, York. Monitoring of the site strip, access road, main services and the house plots revealed no archaeological deposits. Layers of naturally occurring build-ups were noted during the groundworks. A small quantity of artefacts comprising pottery, clay pipe and ceramic building material was recovered during the site strip dating mainly from the 19th century, but with a small residual medieval component.
