Description

York Archaeological Trust was commissioned by the York Museums Trust to undertake a deskbased assessment of the below-ground archaeology for the area. The report aimed to provide a deposit model enabling an assessment of the impact of any development on archaeological deposits in the area. The work has shown that the development area offers the potential to yield evidence for the former course of the River Foss, Roman settlement and possibly burials, Anglo-Scandinavian settlement and burials, buildings relating to the later medieval castle bailey and burials relating to the Former Female Prison.
