Description

An archaeological watching brief was undertaken during the machine excavation of a trench. Exact location uncertain. Possible features, such as pits, were noted but unfortunately could not be confirmed. The thick layer of loam overlying the natural sub-soil was probably medieval plough soil but no dating evidence was recovered from any part of the trench. This plough soil may seal features elsewhere on the site in particular towards Foss Islands Road and Lawrence Street. There is some evidence that modern levelling in the northern part of the site may have removed all archaeological deposits but features cut into the natural sub-soil may survive.
