Description

Monitoring of engineering 6 test-pits recorded no significant archaeological activity. The archaeological watching brief of the test-pits located a thick layer of undated agricultural and horticultural soils and modern garden and construction activities. No evidence for the preservation of significant archaeological deposits in the form of archaeological features, burials, structures or stratigraphy was located in any of the test-pits. However, the presence of a burial in Trench 1 of the 1993 evaluation at 1.5m below the existing ground surface should be noted, and this should be lifted by the re-excavation of the evaluation trench if foundations are to exceed 1.3m in depth. Also a watching brief is advised on all other ground works, as further burials may come to light especially on the north-western side of the development area. Accession no: 2001.13015. York Archaeological Trust Macnab N/2001/All Saints School, Nunnery Lane, York: report on an archaeological watching brief/Report No 2001:57. York Archaeological Trust annual report 36 30/2001-2002
