Description

An extension to an existing property is proposed at 27 St Aubyn's Place, York. A two-storey side and rear extension and single storey rear extension has been granted planning permission. An archaeological condition is attached to this site due to its location within an Area of Archaeological Importance. There is potential for the development to affect important archaeological deposits that must be recorded during the construction programme. Although no specific archaeological features related to possible early activity were encountered, a garden/build up deposit (context 2) contained material culture in the form of fragmented 20th century terracotta plant potsherds and a 1930's rouge make up vessel base. Out with the concrete/brick garage patio area a deposit depth of 0.7m was reached and this revealed approximately 0.45m of buildup garden soils sealing 0.25m of horticultural soil. Natural was not encountered. The evidence from this watching brief concurs with other archaeological evidence derived from the immediate vicinity. Other investigations have also indicated the presence of a deep deposit of horticultural soil.
