On Site Archaeology


Not recorded.



An intermittent watching brief was carried out within the Ebor Carpet Warehouse, 83a Front Street, Acomb, by On Site Archaeology Ltd. The job involved the supervision of the excavation of a series of six narrow, shallow foundation trenches for new internal walls within the existing building. A total of two features of archaeological interest were uncovered as well as one modern pit. In Trench 4, a shallow and indistinct linear feature was revealed that contained no finds. In Trench 5, the truncated remains of a soil profile were found, which contained an assemblage of late medieval pottery and roof tile. This discovery reinforces the fact that this area of Acomb was the focus for medieval activity, but does not provide enough detail to be certain of the nature of that activity on this particular site.
