Description

An archaeological watching brief was carried out on the site of the redevelopment for the new college buildings on the site of the former Derwent School that had been is use by York College. The watching brief was carried out because the site is adjacent to the Tadcaster Road which is thought to closely follow the line of the Roman road that ran south-west from York to Tadcaster. In the majority of cases this material had been cut into by the concrete foundations of the former buildings and its associated services. In the south facing section of the strip observed, a humic peaty deposit was observed overlying the natural subsoil which was in turn overlain by a pale grey silt and presumably represents silting within a pond, but there is no date for this feature.
