Source/Archive record SYO1934 - Three Papal Bullae from Peasholme Green

Title Three Papal Bullae from Peasholme Green


A series of excavations were carried out by York Archaeological Trust in the mid 1980s, in 2012 and again in 2014, in the area of the church and churchyard of All Saints, Peasholme Green situated close by the Black Swan inn. A church was recorded as being on the site by at least the early 12th century but it was demolished in the late 16th century. In all three seasons of excavations, burials were identified and recovered; in 1986 work revealed a robber trench of the north wall of the nave and also at least 75 burials and charnel pits within the church itself. A further 500 burials were recorded and removed during operations in 2012 and 2014. This report is on the 3 Papal Bullae found in 1986 and 2012.
