Description

A major landscaping project by York Museums Trust (YMT) intends to reclaim unused land between the York Art Gallery and Kings' Manor area and the North-West corner of the precinct of St. Mary's Abbey as part of a wider scheme of landscaping developments within the environs of the Museum Gardens, York. In advance of these developments, investigations to establish the nature and condition of deposits immediately below a bowling green on the site were required. An archaeological watching brief undertaken by York Museums Trust on 30/09/2014 recorded the two trenches excavated as part of this scheme of works.
