Over July 13th to 17th 2015, Fishergate Fulford and Heslington Local History Society carried out an electrical resistance survey at the Sir John J Hunt Memorial Cottage Homes in Fulford, York. The project was undertaken as part of the Council for British Archaeology's Festival of Archaeology 2015 and was entirely volunteer based. While the results are somewhat broken up by the large number of buildings, pathways and garden elements, there are a number of geophysical anomalies across the site that probably relate to underlying archaeological features. There is clear evidence of agricultural use of the land in the form of ploughing, as well as suggestions of ridge and furrow. Other clear anomalies include a probable bank and ditch near the western end of the site and several modern services, as well as a number of high and low resistance anomalies that may be of archaeological interest. There are no plans for further archaeological investigation at the site. However, the results of this survey may help to call further attention to Fulford's archaeological significance and potential
