Description

Eight boreholes and three trial pits were observed at the NCP Car Park, 64-74 Skeldergate, York. Well-preserved, organic deposits were recorded in all of the boreholes and one of the trial pits. The dating evidence recovered suggested that the deposits dated from the Roman through to the medieval periods; the finds also indicated that substantial Roman buildings once stood in the vicinity. Further evidence for natural terraces lying parallel to the River Ouse was noted. In addition, there originally appears to have been a valley along the north-west side of the study area, indicating the presence of a tributary stream that ran down to the River Ouse.
