Description

An archaeological excavation was undertaken from 18th May to 26th June 2015 at the site of the Community Stadium, York. A trench approximately 7450 square metres in size was excavated to recover remains from a known Roman camp, which had been identified by aerial photography. Part of two sides and one corner of the Roman camp ditch were present, but the associated bank and most of the internal features had been truncated by modern activity. A small number of undated pits and post-holes were present, together with 18th century plough furrows and modern field drains. The excavation was preceded by a geophysical survey of the pitch and also of the neighbouring SAM 1020976 (York Archaeological Trust [assessment & evaluation reports] Milsted I & Kenny J/2015/Community geophysical survey of a Roman marching camp at Huntington South Moor, York/Report No 15/41)
