Description

In March 2021 York Archaeological Trust conducted an archaeological desk-based study at the site of the Mecca Bingo site, Fishergate, York. The study indicates that the site was used from the Roman period onwards. Excavated features at the site include part of a Roman cemetery together with traces of Roman settlement including field boundaries and roads, the remains of an Anglian settlement, a small number of Anglo-Scandinavian features, remains relating to the medieval priory of St Andrew, postmedieval agricultural deposits and boundary walls, and features relating to buildings of 18th century and later date. The site is clearly of archaeological significance for the Anglian period, as remains of this date are rare within York as a whole.
