Abstract/Summary

Osteological analysis of the human remains recovered from Tyburn, Tadcaster Road, York was undertaken in order to establish age, sex, pathology and any additional skeletal traits. A total of twelve articulated individuals were analysed. These were found to represent ten adults and two sub-adults. Of the adults, nine were identified as male and one was indeterminate. The majority of the individuals demonstrated a range of pathological conditions. It is thought that the skeletons date from the medieval to post-medieval period and the results of radiocarbon dating of two individuals are awaited to confirm this interpretation.
