Metal detecting survey undertaken by York and District Metal Detectorists Club (YDMC). Two separate visits to area just south of the bridge over the Ouse at Bishopthorpe. Found a part-made, tanged arrow in River field area. Second visit yielded cloth material, but data was not used in analysis, as work was not gridded.
