On Site Archaeology


June - 2006



An archaeological watching brief was carried out by On-Site-Archaeology at Rufforth County Primary School, Rufforth on behalf of City of York Council. The work was undertaken in order to fulfil the archaeological condition attached to a planning application for the erection of a toilet block and school hall forming an extension to the existing school. This was in addition to the excavation of drainage trenches and three soakaways. The preliminary work was done in June 2005, the main phase of footing excavation took place in March 2006, and the final drainage works took place in May/June 2006. As the trenches were excavated, close archaeological supervision was maintained in order to identify the presence or absence of any surviving archaeological deposits. No archaeological features or artefacts were encountered.
