Between 16th and 22nd November 2011 York Archaeological Trust undertook a watching brief during repairs to a sewer close to the junction of Tanner Row and Toft Green, York. The objective was to record any deposits, features or buried structures of archaeological significance exposed during the works which involved the excavation of a trench c.3.5m x 2m and over 3m deep. The site was visited on a regular basis and an archaeologist was present during most of the excavation work below clearly modern deposits and services. Recording took the form of written notes and measured sketches supplemented by a series of colour digital photographs. Conclusions: South-west side of a probable Roman wall aligned north-west/south-east, 1.8m Below Ground Level. Possibly associated with a baths building 5m to north-east (RCHMY1, Monument 32).
