Description

An archaeological watching brief was carried out by On-Site Archaeology on land to the rear of 18 Lawrence Street in York. The development area comprised the rear yard area of the existing cycle shop and former chip shop situated just 76m to the east of the city walls. The work monitored consisted of the machine excavation of three trial trenches and the sinking of a single borehole to glean geotechnical information in advance of the redevelopment of the site. The site is located in an area of known archaeological activity ranging from a Roman road through medieval activity to the scene of fierce fighting during the English Civil War.
