Description

Between January and March 2017 York Archaeological Trust conducted an archaeological watching brief during alterations at St Olave’s Church, York (NGR SE 45986 45218). The work was undertaken for Purcell Architects in relation to planning application 15/02648/FUL. It was based on a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) produce by York Archaeological Trust. The watching brief recorded any archaeological remains during excavations for drains, alterations of steps and regrading of a pathway/ramp. Archaeological deposits were revealed during the work, but these were primarily relatively modern disturbances. However, three separate in-situ inhumation burials were encountered, which dated to the post-medieval period and earlier.
