Title Dundas Street EVAL
Date/Year 2016


Between February 29th and March 18th 2016, an archaeological evaluation at the site of a proposed hotel accessed via Dundas Street, York (SE 60795 51921) was carried out by York Archaeological Trust. The work involved the excavation of two 10m x 4m trenches and the monitoring of a series of six geotechnical boreholes and eight test pits. The evaluation trenches revealed a sequence of 19th century deposits and structures associated with the former Leeds Arms public house and pits and dumps of post-medieval date. These were found to overlay intact wall footings relating to a high status complex of domestic medieval buildings as well as terracing deposits of Roman date.
