Description

An archaeological evaluation was undertaken on 31st March-2nd April 2015 at 2a Trentholme Drive, York. A trench 1m x 2m in size and three test pits roughly 0.6m² were excavated to determine whether any burials from a Roman cemetery known to exist in the area survived. One burial was present in the garden to the rear of the property, while the remaining three trenches contained deposits interpreted as the backfill of archaeological excavation trenches dating to the 1950s.
