Between November 2016 and January 2017, York Archaeological Trust (YAT) carried out an archaeological investigation at a proposed health and retail development in Heslington, York (NGR SE 63730 50930). The work was undertaken for Kilmartin, Plowman and Partners Limited in relation to a planning application (15/00049/FULM) and was based upon a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) written by YAT. The monitoring of intrusive groundworks revealed traces of historic plough scars, land drains and hedgerows, however, no significant archaeological deposits were encountered. The removal of modern overburden revealed that the lower lying south-western half of the development area was particularly heavily truncated by landscaping and services associated with the compound of the recent Heslington East development.
