Archaeological investigations in the vicinity of Northern House, 9 Rougier Street, York demonstrate potential for well preserved, deeply stratified and complex archaeological deposition from the Roman to post-medieval periods. Of particular significance is the presence of water logging, providing exceptional conditions ideal for the survival of sensitive organic remains, from approximately 4m below the current ground level. Excavations undertaken close to the proposal site since the 1980’s have exposed a sequence of Roman deposition measuring in the region of 3m - 4m thick, much of which lies within the water logged zone. The evidence for Roman period occupation and activity includes terracing, the construction of streets and yards, as well as timber and masonry buildings. Later deposition includes the potential for complex medieval sequences relating to occupation and industrial activity dating to the 12th to 14th centuries.
