Description

Archaeological interventions in the area of the Falcon Tap Inn, 94 Micklegate, demonstrate the potential of archaeological deposits to a depth of 3.40m BGL. There is potential to encounter post-medieval structures along the frontages of Toft Green and Micklegate. The rear of the current property appears to have been a backyard with outbuildings from at least the 17th Century. Significant deposits of a medieval and Roman date are possible here, sealed below 500mm-750mm of post-medieval build-up/garden soil deposits. Of particular significance is the potential to uncover evidence for the street layout of the Roman civil settlement, and high status Roman buildings.
