|Title||ROMAN, ANGLIAN AND ANGLO-SCANDINAVIAN ACTIVITY AND A MEDIEVAL CEMETERY ON LAND AT THE JUNCTION OF DIXON LANE AND GEORGE STREET|
From 7 November 2005 to 27 January 2006 an archaeological intervention was undertaken by York Archaeological Trust on a site at the junction of Dixon Lane and George Street, York. This began as a watching brief but turned into a full-scale excavation following the discovery of abundant human remains on the site. The excavation area consisted of a trench c. 25m x 20m in size which was excavated by hand (with the exception of one arbitrary spit of soil in the north-eastern corner of the site; see Methodology). The primary aim of the excavation was to recover all the human remains on the site prior to redevelopment; in addition, as many pre-cemetery features as possible were excavated within the time limits of the excavation.
