Description

A ground-penetrating radar survey was successfully completed over c. 0.25ha to the front of the Yorkshire Museum buildings, and numerous anomalies of archaeological origin were detected across the survey area at depths of up to 2m (the maximum depth of investigation). The majority of these anomalies pertain to the remains of St Mary’s Abbey, with extensive evidence for the remains of the western range of claustral buildings. Additional responses suggest the presence of a previously unknown structure in the southwest of the survey area, lying on a different orientation to that of the 13th/14th century abbey buildings.
