Description

An archaeological watching brief was carried out by On Site Archaeology in the June of 2008 and on works associated with the development at Joseph Rowntree School in the village of New Earswick, York. The work was carried out in light of an evaluation of the site, also carried out by On Site Archaeology in June 2007. The work consisted of site visits during area stripping for an access road and temporary car park on land to the immediate south of the school. Within this strip the deepest reduction was within the south western corner of the trench, here, several cut features were detected. This was cleaned and sample excavated revealing a Romano British linear and a medieval pit. A number of other discreet features remain undated.
